I started by reading 'Java Server Pages And Servlets' by Mark Wutka of Wutka Consutling. It helped me a lto and I picked up some cool tips from it.
However, nowadays you do not need a book to learn anything. All the stuff you need is available from the net. You just have to search a bit more. I personally feel at home here at Javaranch and I don't have to go anywhere else for information because people here are so kind in offering their help!
