    If your goal is to "distinguish between important and unimportant stuff" while tracing, there's no substitute for experience. No book will teach you that, even though the information in the books is important to learn as well.

    I might suggest you code your own basic skeleton PE (dll/exe), or find an example on the net, and disassemble/trace it. You will then learn what a simple PE file that does "nothing" looks like. Learn to recognize standard constructs (i.e. message queues, window creation, etc.), so they'll become familiar in larger files.

    You should read Iczelion's Win32 Assembly and PE tutorials. Study the programming structure lessons closely and disassemble/trace some of the compiled examples. This is one of the best resources around.

    Good luck,
