I found "EJB 3 in Action" to be very useful.

I liked both
Manning's "Ejb 3 in action"
Wiley's "Mastering EJB 3.0"

The "in action" book is shorter, and takes a more "hands on" approach, though it's still very careful in making sure you understand what you're doing.

The "mastering" book is longer, and tends to go into more detailed explanations. Some of them are over-verbose, while others really gave me a little extra insights.

Even to me EJB 3 in Action seems more useful.
