We just discussed this the other day:
Boolean value
There's also a brief treatment at the campfire:
boolean - hmmmm... you're not supposed to ask. It holds a value of true or false, but it's really stored as a numeric value, probably in a byte-sized cup. Try not to think about the size; all you know is that it holds a boolean.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
