Please have a look at the "PostScript Tutorial and Cookbook" (The Blue 
Book) available at

For normal usage of PSTricks, you need not know PostScript. Please have
look at the PSTricks tutorial (not complete) available at



Yes, I forgot about the blue book.  Bill Casselman's book 
will be of interest to somebody who is interested in mathematics. 
But it may be tough otherwise. His book page
also contains links to other tutorials on postscript, in particular, 
the blue book mentioned by you.
