Antonio Santiago Perez has completed a new book titled OpenLayers Cookbook. He writes on his blog:

The book is a practical book written in a cookbook style. I tried to find and describe the common recipes anybody can use or can need in a day to day work. Of course, the OpenLayers library and JavaScript language are great enough to be described in a single book.

The recipes level goes from beginner to intermediate users with some touches for advanced users.

The first chapter is available in pdf. The e-book is $23.
