The Plone Book on plone.org will cover the use of Plone as a CMS. That 
is to say, mostly user/adminstrator level customization. The various CMF 
(cmf.zope.org) docs will help you with developing at a more fundamental 
level for Plone/CMF, and understanding how things work. The Zope docs 
(like the Zope Book and others) will help with that too.

Plone, being new and fast-moving, does a lot of things that just aren't 
explained anywhere but the source. There are initiatives to address 
this, but that's going to take time. In the meantime, ask the 
plone-users list about whatever you may come up against, and don't be 
afraid to look at the source.
