They're not in there.  There are a lot of layers at work here:

The Zope Book only documents zope itself.

CMF is a framework for building content management apps that is 
implemented on top of Zope.  There aren't really any good docs
about CMF :-(  (Well, there are docs about bits of it.. there's
a good DCWorkflow pdf doc around.) 

Plone is a content management app implemented for CMF. 
Good Plone docs, but a bit out of date:
Also check out the plone-users mailing list and the #plone
IRC channel, both will help you immensely.

Archetypes is a content-type development framework for Plone.

Yes, unfortunately there is a lot to learn. But for something 
as sophisticated as you describe, that's hard to avoid.
