I bought a book called '3D for iPhone Apps with Blender and SI02' by Tony Mullen. A guide to creating 3D games and more. I haven't read any yet but might be what you are looking for. However, you will need to know stuff about matrices to do it.
It took me years to figure out blender and sometimes it still pisses me off. Just find web and youtube tutorials and beat it into submission. Eventually you'll figure it out. Main thing to remember is that it doesn't follow any conventions that other programs do for shortcut keys or anything. Its in its own little world. And you're its bitch in that world
