Maybe this one. It's about JavaFX 1.0, though.

Our book, JavaFX - Developing Rich Internet Applications, just came out last week.
It is available on amazon.

Also, Amazon has it available in Kindle form. As for Paypal purchases, I'm not sure if either accepts it.

@Ulf Dittmer, the book you reffered is fairly out-dated , so much that even Hello - world program doesn't work , the packages referred are deprecated , and syntax of the book is not valid so that book should not be referred to any one also as per my understanding the book was released in 2007 and JavaFX 1.0 is released in Dec 2008 so there is no way the book is about JavaFX 1.0 unless it has a new edition.
