As far as books go, if you search Amazon for "cocoon", the top 3 books
returned should be more than plenty.  However, these only really cover
Cocoon 2.0.x, and do not touch on some of the more recent technology in
Cocoon such as the Flowscript.

You may wish to download Cocoon 2.1 from CVS, and check out the "Petstore"
sample, which makes extensive use of the Flow, which some people around
here describe as "MVC+".  In fact, lots of the samples would probably be
useful to check out.
