You'll also want to check the publisher's website (packtpub.com) as this book has significant errata and code downloads (though some files referenced in the book are not present in the downloads).
I found this to be the "read" that I hand to all new developers who join up with me at my client. There are other books out there, and maybe this is not the most comprehensive, but its hands-on and serves as a full lifecycle reference, 3-4 months down the road. There are thoughts in this book on most anything you'd tackle using MCMS. My book definitely has some wear-n-tear.
I'm very much looking forward to the sequel to this book in Nov 2005.
Even if your experience is short, this book will help you starting out with installing, creating templates(explains them pretty well),establishing placeholders, creating postings, and everything else that you need to know to start and continue to work in MCMS. So far this is the best starter book that I have found. I also bought the Advanced MCMS book based on the positive experience that I had with this book.
I've interacted with the Authors (Stefan Gossner and Mei Ying) through the microsoft.public.cmserver.general news group for several of my problems and they are very knowledgable in the CMS product. I dont know them personally though! If you want to learn CMS2002 in detail this book is worth the buy.
