Proverbial stuff

Anybody know anything about the book of Proverbs? I am preaching from it twice in August (chapters 8 and 9) and would appreciate any or all of the following;

Commentary recommendations
Your own wise thoughts (see what I did there?) or personal insights from previous study

Help especially appreciated on the shape/structure and purpose of the book (since, to quote Matt Bellamy from Muse, 'time is running out').

I should add that I have already read 'Gospel and Wisdom' by Graeme Goldsworthy on the issue of wisdom literature in general and its relation to Christ (though obviously I have much more to learn about that).

Embryonic forms of sermons/ thoughts in progress may well appear here in the near future.
