I hope that things will get explained in the game itself for the newbies, I've been reading the books for the last 13 ~ 14 years and still don't know everything.
I'd recommend the Blood of Kerensky trilogy if you are only getting into the lore now. It explains the current status quo and the next two years.

A good crash course to the universe would be go to sarna.net and just pick a time era and read up on the major events and if it sparks your interest read some more detailed artcles or pic up some books.
Hope it helps a little

read some of the novels like the blood of Kerensky as was suggested...
also Decision at Thunder Rift will get you started with the Grey Death Legion...who by the way of the Grey Death memory core will be somewhat significant in this game if I don't miss my guess.
also you can go to the Battletech Wiki online and get a bit of info
Thanks guys, Ill start with sarna.net and work my way deeper, hopefully I can track down some of those suggested books.
