Backbone has some of the clearest, most self-explanatory source of any project I've ever worked on. Also, at around 1500 lines of commented code it's a quick read that you can take in all at once (and again later). Also, make sure to read the source in the master branch as well as the annotated docs from the website to keep you informed on the upcoming changes.

I'm not saying that you shouldn't read tutorials, guides, and docs, but you should concentrate most of your effort on taking in the source.
