Does your book provide some recommendations, perhaps based on most common case scenarios, on the various Replication modes offered in JBoss Cluster and why some are more appropriate than others?

Yes, in the two clustering chapters of JBoss in Action (12 & 13), we describe the different replication modes and talk about what modes are appropriate for what services.
In section 12.1.5 we describe Replication and Fault Tolerance. We talk about the types of state replication, buddy replication, and invalidation.
In section 13.2 we talk about HTTP session replication and passivation.
In section 13.3.2 we discuss SFSB replication
In section 13.4 we discuss Entity cache replication
