If you are looking for an introductory text I found the Bjorn Karlsson book very good. It was a while ago when I read it so there may be more up to date texts available now. Find it here.

This one illustrates the old smart pointers (from the stl) and the new ones from boost -- in adequate detail.

p.s., if your new to C++ you might want to skip this book as it's not worth buying it for just one article.

You might wnat to check out The Definitive C++ Book Guide and List

For your purposes I would especially recommend:

They are not in particular order, also you might want to read and code something in between them.

(Note: As noted by @John Dibling the Boost book might be a bit out of date, I do not have experience with that one myself)

I can't see any reason to learn whole Boost at once. You could reference to Boost Documentation for information about parts of Boost you really need in your work.

There is a book - Beyond the C++ Standard Library: An Introduction to Boost. You could start from reading it.
