There's not only the Wikipedia. This tutorial looks pretty good:
When you're already familiar with the HTTP basics, you can even skip some parts.
The idea behind REST is pretty simply: Instead of building all kinds of protocols on top of HTTP, why not use HTTP itself? REST is a kind of "HTTP rediscovered". When you understand HTTP and realize there's more than GET and POST, it won't be difficult to understand REST (at least that's my experience).
