I've been reading Java Persistence with Hibernate.
It's very good, uses a fair amount of humour and offers excellent, real-world-like examples. You can download the examples used in their book from their website here: http://jpwh.org
Finally, you may want to check out the Book Review forum for more ideas.

kindly give your thoughts.
None of my suggestions are actually books, but I think they are still good resources.
I really like the Java Persistence API WikiBook. When I'm having an issue with JPA, JPQL, or something related it's the first resource I'll check to find a solution. It's really an excellent resource (in my humble opinion)! It's not a step-by-step tutorial, but you'll find everything required in this wiki book: from basic entity mappings to complex JPQL queries.
