One book you may want to consider is the _Beginner's Guide to
Mathematica Version 3_ by Jerry Glynn and Theodore Gray.  A description
of this book can be found at URL:

and a complete table of contents can be found at URL:

The CD-ROM edition is comprised of notebooks that integrate seamlessly
with the Mathematica help browser, so you can think of it as an
extension to the Mathematica book.

It contains a substantial information about the front end, including an
exhaustive list of Front End commands, an explanation of Style Sheets,
and a chapter called "How do I use that darn Option Inspector anyway?" 

This might be something you guys have been looking for?
