Is there a good resource that discusses the pros and cons of different firewall types?

Is it advisable to have more than one firewall? I have a 2wire DSL modem with its own firewall. Would adding a software FW (like McAfee Personal Firewall Plus) give me any extra benefit?

Thanks for tuning in, appreciate any advice.
