Yes, that book is still missing. Many plans but so far people were
focused on implementing the spec and improving it (JSR-283) ;-)

The case is not that bad if you take a look at the spec [1] (and
upcoming JCR 2.0 / JSR-283 [2], download latest versions and get the
pdf). It is well-written and gives a good tutorial at the beginning.

There are many links to introductions and tutorials on the wiki:

Hope that helps,
