The installation manual is a good place, as is debian-reference, as are
the man pages.

You may find it easier to install the aptitude-doc package and read its
comprehensive manual.  Aptitude has two modes: first, as a drop-in
replacement for apt-get, but second, without any parameters it gives you
a screen with menus where you can search for packages, select any
package and see info about it (dependancies, etc), install it, or update
and upgrade the system.
