What's a good book (or online resource) about audio editing for a beginner who is smart and wants in-depth knowledge? I'm working with dialogue mostly -- not music.

I'm going to start recording people talking (as opposed to music or singing) as wavs and converting to MP3s. I would like to gain a better understanding of my audio-editor's (Adobe Audition) features and filters. But I'm not an audio guy by trade. Still, I'm a fast learner. Can someone point be towards a good resource (i.e. book) which will teach me what I need to know? I want to understand Equalization, Frequencies, etc. All the stull that will pop up in the various dialogues in the software.
Specificially, I want to learn what to do -- i.e. what equalization settings to use, smart types/amounts of compression -- to create good mp3s from these wavs. But I'd like to gain an overall understanding of audio under-the-hood as well.
