While this book covers the basics of Drupal 7, it almost exclusively deals with the core modules and gives few examples of their real-world use. It is no where near as useful as the O'Reilly "Using Drupal" by Byron et al., but alas, that book only covers Drupal 6, and there are huge differences between 6 and 7.
