Apple makes its official user guides available for free in digital formats. You can find physical copies from various third-parties ranging from around $10-$20 on Amazon, but the free official iBooks guides have some benefits.

Aside from being the official guides from Apple, these guides are updated over time as the company releases new software and changes come to Apple TV. Another big benefit is that iBooks are quickly searchable.
