Start with reading pretty much everything on the FreeBSD web site.
especially the handbook and FAQs.
There are several good books out.  I get along quite well with
  FreeBSD Unleashed  by Michael Urban and Brian Tiemann
Someone has walked off with my copy of the Complete FreeBSD which
is also good.    But, the FreeBSD Handbook is most authoritative
and is online at the FreeBSD site and also available in print at
various places.

Of course, man pages are essential reading for various things.
But, you knew that.
