The man(7) page is pretty good.  I learned it from that and from looking
at examples; it's not difficult.  You can use something like
  nroff -man filename.8 | less
to preview your work.

There is also a Man-Page mini-howto.  I've never read it, but it looks
interesting on first glance.

There are of course plenty of examples to look at.  8 MB of them,
on my system :-)
