I've not read it, but will be purchasing it myself soon, but based on 
the author's track record, I'd imagine that

Michael Lucas, FreeBSD Mastery ZFS

is a coherent and practical place to start.  It just came out so should 
be up to date.

is the author's own sales venue.  Should also be available from Amazon 
for Kindle and, when the presses finish, on paper.

My only issue with Mr. Lucas's self-published works are that I find a 
number of typos and the like that a good editor would have reduced in 
number.  The technical information tends to be quite solid IMHO.
