My favorite is midnight commander running in an aterm (xterm) window.
It's fast, versatile, and reads all formats; .txt, .gz, .html, .pdf,
etc. internally or with your favorite readers for those formats.
$ apt-cache show mc
But $ man <command> is the way to go for just the man pages.
I also find these two references very handy:
$ apt-cache show debian-reference
