The Expect "bible" is probably Don Libes' "Exploring Expect".

My 10+-year-old copy has served me well.

It's hard to go wrong with O'Reilly Nutshell handbooks first published back
in the nineties.

I've used Expect to automate all kinds of stuff -- it's one of those tools
that, once you learn it, you wonder how you ever did without.
