The JavaRanch Bunkhouse is a great place to get book recommendations. Here is the JavaRanch review of John Zukowski's "Java Collections."

Of course, now that Java 1.5/5 has introduced generics, an updated Collections book will be needed.

It's not a book (although it may be available as one) but I find this to be a good resource:

This one IS a book, but not specifically about collections. Joshua Bloch's Effective Java Programming goes into depth about many of the side issues concerning Collections, and many of the other examples use Collections as the basis. I believe he also either wrote or helped write the Java Collections Framework in the API.
