I think that The Mathematica Book by Wolfram is a good book from which to learn Mathematica, as well as being the authoritative reference. Mathematica is such a massive piece of software, you will never learn it all. I've found that you learn best by first thinking of something that you would like to do (say integrate a function), and then you set about learning how to do it. If you are mostly interested in a particular topic (say calculus), then there are books that concentrate on those topics. But a good general book is the Mathematica Book.
