Definitely the best introduction to mashing for a home brewer is How to Brew by John Palmer.
I generally use Briess, and I've heard mixed things about Rahr. Then again I've also heard mixed things about Briess,so that doesn't mean anything. I think Rahr and Briess should be very similar, but someone else may have a different opinion. I don't think it's about your malt at this point.
