Some sections of FreeBSD Handbook might be outdated.

It is written in FreeBSD Handbook:

Welcome to FreeBSD! This handbook covers the installation and day to day use of FreeBSD 11.2-RELEASE,FreeBSD 11.1-RELEASE, and FreeBSD 10.4-RELEASE. This book is the result of ongoing work by many individuals. Some sections might be outdated: https://www.freebsd.org/doc/handbook/

I want to read content updated to learn use FreeBSD.

Just use the handbook. It's just a warning some things may not be as up to date as they should be. That doesn't change the fact that >90% is perfectly useful even if it's slightly outdated.

consider this, the FreeBSD people is so nice and professional they warn you that something may be outdated !

take our word, just use it. it rocks. try it.

after a while you will observe the Handbook offers a general view and general canvas configurations to get you started. But points you to the relevant man pages, which are top quality in depth docs (in FreeBSD) and you can be sure are referring the FreeBSD relese you are using.

I have three boks (outdated) but they are all the time on my desk:
Dru Lavigne: BSD Hacks (2004)
Unix Power Tools (2003 - 3rd edition)
Michael W. Lucas: Absolute FreeBSD 2nd edition
And all of three are very useful still.
