If you want a book then id say keeping and breeding australian lizards by mike swan around 40 -50 dollars would be a good start check out seekbooks.com.au gets to you in two days. but you really can get most of your info here on the net....

Don't feel bad, I'm sure there are plenty of reptile keepers that are virgins. Probably more than there are in other hobbies. Glad to hear the wife finally said yes to you though. Try not to be too nervous and you'll be fine

Good work convincing her about the reptiles too My wifes given up these days. She just sometimes says, "Is that one new?" Me "yep!". Rolls eyes....
we have 6 pigmys your wife will love them they are great little guys and gals. fun to watch and to get out. any questions i can answer for you let me know6x lawson dragons, 1x woma Dexi, 1x murray Darling Molly, 1x rabbit Flopsy and a blond lab Bella
My mum just got her pygmy at the sofar expo, the thing has grown like a trooper and is really fun to watch chasing crickets. Have been trying to convince the wife to let me get one for my daughter but shes not that keen as we have three carpets already and she thinks we dont have anymore room. I always say we can always create some by getting rid of you stuff. Doesnt go down well though!When she says no to another snake! She secretly really wants you to buy another!
Well Pat welcome to reptiles, you might have been better off staying with the wife.
as you can see there is a lot of info & a lot of BS out there. Sometimes i think the bs just gets some of those people jacked off.
Mate you are allways welcome & ask away as no question is a silly one.
IanDon't believe everthing you hear & read.
Sometimes experience & wisdom are better options.
