There is some documentation online at:

http://www.latex-project.org/guides/

which would be a good starting place.

If you prefer a good book, The LaTeX Companion (aka TLC) is the place to begin:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0201362996

There is also a boxed set (expensive) of several books (including TLC) available:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0321269446

Finally, for dealing with EPS (or PDF) graphics (ie. R plots), the online document "Using Imported Graphics in LaTeX and pdfLaTeX" is excellent:
