I think I own every book written on FrameMaker.
"The Frame Handbook" by Branagan & Sierra (O'Reilly &
Associates) is the most useful to me. The 94 tips and
tricks are worth the price of the book.
It is written for the X Window System, but most of it
applies to other platforms.
The learning curve is not that steep. Frame 5 includes
8 modules of very good interactive CBT on using Frame.
