i got this book a while back and found it quite useful for most types of texturing. i'm assuming it may be a bit out of date with some of the newer nodes added in recent updates, but it does have a good breakdown of what each node does. i mostly got it for some help in the texture painting and UV unwrapping departments, but a good book overall.

and there is also this dvd. i have not seen it, but it came up under the recommended section when i searched for the book.

in newtek web there is a good and simple video to introduce you to node.
then you can search info about use of node on other software like maya and xsi, most of logical and math node work at same mode in all software.
just to understand the power under the hood... and understand how to connect and manipulate flow of node.

The DVD is available at Kurv, as a disk or downloadable. I purchased the download a while ago and found it good for a beginner.
