RE: HP-50G Reading List
For basic introduction to RPL and the vast number of different functions in the 50g, the manuals recommended above are very good, however you also asked for some that provide "good insight into the system".

For the latter, you should read Bill Wickes' "HP-48 Insights" books, Vols 1 & 2. These books are a bit harder to read than the manuals, but they are truly well-named as they do in fact provide insights that will give you a much deeper and more effective understanding of how RPL works, which empowers you to use it in many more ways than simply saving keys (as compared to algebraic machines). "Advanced" topics like extreme stack-juggling, list-processing and structured storage techniques are well explained with non-trivial problem-solving examples that you can put to work as-is, or readily tailor to your own needs.

Read the above books first, get the basics down, then come read this when you're ready to take it to the next level.

All 3 (2 x SX and 1 x GX flavor) books are included in the MoHPC collection of documents available here.
