In general, the manual is quite good.  It is fully searchable and easy to 
read.  It can be found here:

http://www.postgresql.org/docs/8.0/interactive/

There are also a books, three of which are available online:

http://www.postgresql.org/docs/books/

And, of course, there is always the MANY postgresql email lists and their 
SEARCHABLE archives:

http://archives.postgresql.org/

Open source and the postgresql community are full of resources, and those 
above are only a few.
