I haven't read too many books solely on Ajax frameworks but I cannot recommend this one enough. You'll be up and running with jQuery faster than you can imagine.
It's very fast paced, and a relatively slim volume, jam-packed with info. Highly recommended.
I only wish it had a little more meat to it. I think it's just a matter of a few things I'd hoped to find not being there though. Definitely suggest this book if you're serious about messing with jQuery in a real project.
I recommend pairing it with jQuery Cookbook (by the jQuery Community Experts) because they trace the same ideas from slightly different angles and you'll covers all the bases.
I did use some of the example code for testing purposes, specifically with the section on selectors, and multiple ways of getting to the same DOM element, but other than that, I just wrote my own stuff and referred back to this book like a manual. Highly recommended if you are serious about getting to know jQuery.
