Bruce's book is a good one, but a large portion of the page count is 
devoted to basically an SQL primer.  If you aren't comfortable with SQL, 
it's a good starting place.

A book that is a bit deeper in the installation and administration of 
PostgreSQL is "Practical PostgreSQL" by John C. Worsley and Joshua D. Drake.

It's one of the O'reilly books, ISBN 1-56592-846-6.
