for .NET I have used two content management systems- Umbraco and DotNetNuke. Both have their strengths and weaknesses. If you want to go fo out of the box editing of your site, I would suggest DotNetNuke.
But if you want more control over your pages and use of Master pages, Umbraco would be more suited. If you are going in for a shared hosting environment, check with your host, if he would allow full permissions, because of these CMSs dont like restrictive

Unfortunately, the community edition for dotnetnuke doesnt have much support and tutorial. There is more paid content than free.
But the Wrox books are good. Professional DotNetNuke. Its written by the creator of DotNetNuke.

Well if you want to learn about CMS then the books/articles are the best resource, however, already developed CMS (open source) will certainly help you understanding the core of CMS development.
I would just you to first get a thorough understanding of development methodologies, patterns and then get involved in CMS development.
Sitefinity is the best CMS whiz easy to understand and deploy. I hope that would help you a lot and enhance your concepts about CMS and development.
