If you are new to cisco firewalls I would recommend to buy this book, this is 2007 2nd edition, will cover PIX/ASA and FWSM platforms, there may be 3rd edition but not sure.

Cisco ASA, PIX, and FWSM Firewall Handbook

http://www.ciscopress.com/bookstore/product.asp?isbn=1587051583

AS for links related to PIX ASA there are many but these two links is a good start.

PIX500 series ( Look at data sheets and white papers ) to learn on the hardware aspect first

ASA5500 Platforms,see complete presentation videos
