Start with the O'Reilly Guide Learning GNU Emacs by Debra Cameron, James Elliott, and Marc Loy, available in the computer section of your favorite bookstore or on line at O'Reilly also produces a useful pocket reference guide (also by Debra Cameron) with less explanation but a good list of the most-used commands and settings. Purchase of the books helps support the programmers that work on emacs.

The best way to learn about emacs is simply to start using it. You'll quickly find solutions to your own problems, and the enormous emacs user community is usually more than happy to support you in your effort to learn it. Brace yourself, and come on board. Happy writing!
