none. at least i've never used any other reference material. i started out
with the emacs lisp intro, and from there on only used the elisp reference
manual that comes with emacs.

as a first step toward solving your problem, do:

C-h i m elisp RET m index RET m message RET

or alternatively, put your cursor directly after the following line and
type C-x C-e (in emacs, of course):

(info "(elisp)Displaying Messages")
