If you want to become a paramotor pilot, I believe it’s important to become a member of the PPG association:
In the same way as the USHPA web site the paramotor association is an amazing source of information to help you to learn safely, find good paramotor instructor.
Another extremely Good quality magazine online (you need to pay a membership)

Airspace Law Ultralights
The best video to learn about airspace.
If you want to become a paragliding or a paramotor pilot you need to master the understanding of Airspace. For example, because you can have a restricted airspace just next to your flying site. So there is a lot of book explaining the basic but I really think that this video is a fantastic tool to really understand all the detail about airspace in general. And in an attractive 3D demonstration.
(a must for all pilot)
If you like paper books and are more on your way to become a paramotor or ppg pilot then the PPG bible if full of all the good info to get started on the right path.
