I really like Greg Lehey's 'The Complete FreeBSD'. It seems to go deeper into 
the material than Absolute BSD from Michael Lucas (although I think that's a 
great book too, it's very easy to read). 

Other books that I haven't read myself but I heard good things about are 
'FreeBSD Unleashed' and 'FreeBSD: The Complete Reference'.
