I've hung back from answering this, as I'm the author of one of the JavaFX books currently available and I didn't think it would be fair for me to comment. However, as nobody else has volunteered an answer, I'll tell you about the two books I've experience of.
"Pro JavaFX Platform" (APress) is written by four highly respected members of the JavaFX community, including Stephen Chin who runs the JFXtras project (housing various extensions/alternatives to the standard JFX libraries). The book offers a comprehensive tutorial of JavaFX 1.2 plus the JFXtras project using Netbeans, through a series of small examples and a few larger projects. It is also designed to work well as a desktop API reference.
"JavaFX in Action" (Manning) was written by myself as a tutorial for novices that mixes fun with practicality. The book explains in depth (and in plain English) what makes JavaFX special and why it works the way it does, through a series of projects (my fav is the Enigma machine emulator!) It deliberately does not cover every single API class, just a broad representative sample -- the idea: compliment on-line docs, don't reprint them! The book is IDE agnostic, and tries to use free/open source tools when possible (eg: Inkscape rather than Adobe Illustrator).
Both books cover the latest JavaFX version (1.2) and both where written with the cooperation of Sun's JavaFX team members. Other books are available, but I'm not familiar with them -- hopefully other forum members will provide details.
