I bought this book a long time ago
http://www.amazon.com/Policy-Routing-Using-Linux-Professional/dp/0672320525

I have to say it helped me a lot - even if it is quite antiquated.

Unfortunately, online / up to date information and documentation for Linux
in general is pretty scarce, particularly distribution-centric
documentation. The reason for this is that developers tend to hate
documentation and Linux itself is a moving target - documentation needs
constant updating.

I wonder how many people would pay for good documentation?
