SSRS From the Ground Up - Develop my understanding and skillset

I'm a report builder by trade - I've been building reports in BO, MS Access and SSRS for 16 years.  In each job/project I've had I've used the final product - SQL database and SSRS server and I've built reports without doing any Administration.

I have a new venture that has no infrastructure.  There will be a SQL database server with corporate data but there is no SSRS server.  I want to be prepared for this so I'm not walking around asking for help but instead creating reports right off the bat.  

I understand the concepts of ETL and SSIS but I don't know how to administer these.  I don't know if they are needed for this project.  But I need to know the steps needed that allow SSRS reports to run.  

Is there a book that you experts can suggest that goes higher level than creating SSRS reports?  
Any suggestions for my research and knowledge are greatly appreciated!

How about Professional Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Reporting Services?

It includes 4 chapters on understanding the installation and architecture of SSRS, and 2 chapters on Administration.
