I don't mean this in a snarky way, but shell man pages are historically in the class of docs that you really need to read over and over again. There are a few books on shell programming, most of them not very good, but I personally have read the bash man pages literally thousands of times and before I'm dead, I expect to multiply that many times over. There are really good web pages that people have put a lot of of time and energy into, and those are not to be dismissed. The idea is to assemble your resources enough that you can know where to go to answer a specific question. In between those questions, you really need to re-read your reference material on a regular basis.

It never ends. :-)
I'm using searching on man page and also bash reference manual is quite usable (at least it has index).
