Bob Katz has already been mentioned.
Porbably the most efficient way to learn this sort of thing
is to work under the supervision of someone who knows what
he's doing, either formally or unformally.
Apart from that, again 'know what you are doing' - that is
don't just turn knobs blindly, but try to understand why
things work or don't work, and learn the relation between
'the knobs' and 'the sound'.
If something sounds OK after you have been tweaking it for
a long time, the chances are that I will disappoint you when
you hear it again next week. The reason is that your hearing
will adapt even to the worst ideas if you give them enough
time. This improves with training and lots of very conscious
listening. But an essential part of being able to set e.g. an
equaliser or an effect is to do it relatively quickly and
without too much 'exploration'.
