Yeah, books are great, especially for complex languages like Swift or Perl. I can get by using a syntax reference if I just need to complete a task, but I just see if I can find a general introductory book. Best practices are a must and the most important things to know. Documentation will always be there but knowing the best way to do something is extremely valuable.
