I don't know of any books, unfortunately.  The Learn tab on this site has useful links, and many contributors post links to medical journal articles, etc, but I think you'd have to search on a particular subject to find those posts.  I usually "just Google it" as a starting point when trying to learn more. 

I would suggest keeping a journal of what you've learned along the way, such as the effects of the meds you've been prescribed and any info on PM settings that you've been told, and also to record how you're feeling.  This journal can help you have productive meetings with your medical team.
