I looked at several PostgreSQL-specific books about a year ago, and 
picked this one:
Beginning Databases with PostgreSQL: From Novice to Professional, Second 
Edition
http://www.amazon.com/Beginning-Databases-PostgreSQL-Novice-Professional/dp/1590594789

This is an intelligently written database intro book that covers both 
general database topics and PostgreSQL-specific topics. I had Oracle and 
MySQL experience beforehand, but still found this book quite useful. It 
is true now that I generally refer to the documentation.
