I managed to get the ARexx book that came with an A4000 of ebay for a couple of quid. (£2UK)

aminet,

ARexxGuide is a complete ARexx reference with tutorials and dozens
of ready-to-use examples. Done in AmigaGuide format, it includes
argument templates and descriptions of all instruction keywords, of
built-in functions, and of the functions in rexxsupport.library.
The basic elements of the language are fully explained. Example
programs -- some of them interactive -- answer frequently-asked
questions about the language. Sample clauses are included with each
function and instruction explanation. Error codes and possible
solutions are explained.

A help-system that will turn nearly any text editor into an online
reference to ARexx is included. Working macros for three editors
are provided as examples. A step-by-step tutorial explains the
simple steps for making a new macro for a different editor.

ARexxGuide is a shareware offering. The suggested fee is $15.

You can also download the ARexx manual in plain text format here: http://amycoder.hypermart.net/

Another tip is to download lots of ARexx scripts from Aminet and read the source code.

Happy hacking!

That's the best way to do it no matter what computer language one is learning. Good luck. :)
