I had Adobe Type Manager for a while, and it made me pull my hair out. I have now downloaded and used this:

http://www.fontutilities.com/Fast_Font_Set/32/

which is a free program that uses no almost memory and lets you organize your fonts as you see fit. Rubs great alongside Illustrator and PS. It's still not quite exactly what I need, but it's close, and free.

If you use a Mac OS X 10.4 includes Font Book, works well. More of an industry standard would be Suitcase from Extensis.

This book is awesome. I saw it a year or so ago at school, it totally blew me away. It's full of Adobe tutorials and great ideas:

Logo Font & Lettering Bible
by Leslie Cabarga



He also has a good book on color palettes too. Actually, anything by him is awesome.
