Does anyone know of any books that give a good explanation/description of traveling through the warp?

Well, Battle for the Abyss takes place almost entirely while in Warp transit and spends a lot of time over how screwed up it can be. Unfortunately, the story doesn't contribute to advancing the HH, but does demonstrate that not all the marines from the Traitor Legions were traitors.

The White Zone is for loading and unloading only. If you have to load, or if you have to unload, go to the White Zone. You'll love it... it's a way of life.

Jeff Megall: It's the final frontier, Nick.
Nick Naylor: But wouldn't they blow up in an all oxygen environment?
Jeff Megall: Probably. But it's an easy fix. One line of dialogue. 'Thank God we invented the... you know, whatever device.'

Farseer has a pov character that is an astropath, he talks about what is like and has a brief scene showing what it is like.

I beleive one of the earlier Gaunt's Ghst novels contains a portion of fighting in the Warp while in transit to another star system. Rawne certainly deals with very nasty case while keeping Gaunt's son alive, and his prisoner safe. I'm uncertain though which one it is if any of my fellow Heretics can recall.

One of the main characters of ADB's Night Lord's series is a Astropath and so deals with the Warp quite a bit. What makes it interesting is that she is a Astropath in the service of Chaos which makes using the Astromonicon (or however you spell it) an interesting task.
