Dan Gookin's Programmer's Guide to NCurses is literally the only curses documentation which is worth reading. The internet is littered with vague, incomplete documentation about curses. The book is not new, by any means, but curses has not changed since it was written, so it's still very much relevant. It contains small, focused sample apps on almost every page, making it easy to try out each of the features in isolation. The index is also extensive. This book is one of the small handful of physical paper books i have kept over the years.
