PostgreSQL: Introduction and Concepts

PostgreSQL: Introduction and Concepts is an excellent introduction, not only to PostgreSQL in particular, but to databases in general.
Conclusion

Aside from some relatively minor problems as mentioned above, PostgreSQL is a solid reference for constructing, manipulating and managing a database. As the software grows, so will its audience. As to whether it's worth the purchase price, one of the best things about this book is its availability on-line. If you are a PostgreSQL guru and need only an occasional reference, you might well forego purchasing the book and use the on-line version. Otherwise, it's a remarkably good investment.
