I'm not a postgres developer.. and really, all of this information is on the 
postgres website.. But I liked reading PostgreSQL by Korry Douglas and Susan 
Douglas (ISBN: 0735712573) which gave me all the information I needed about 
PostgreSQL itself as well as the various API's. I found them pretty easy to 
understand and use. I'm also a C programmer (novice) and the C api (libpq) is 
pretty easy to understand if you understand databases.

However, I seem to work better having hard bound copies I can read in meetings 
and carry with me. The online documentation is far superior than some of the 
competing products, I would certainly start there.
