There are lots of tutorials on youtube that give good insight, and even some of Ableton's videos. Start with that and branch off on your own from there.

I would stick to the internet free stuff. If you do a search on Amazon there are a few books that focus on Live but I would make sure they don't just tell you what the manual tells you!
