I do not know how much of an abstract learner/thinker you are, but when I 
learned OOP, a book did not help me at all; I learned it by doing. And in 
this case I would say the Zope 3 Developers Book is the right thing. It 
covers all component types in a practical instructional manner. If this is 
not enough for you, the Zope X3 source code has some really great README.txt 
files that point out subtleties and corner cases.
