JPA book query

Hi

I am planning to buy a book on JPA.

i found that there are two books for JPA

a. Pro EJB 3: Java persistence API By Mike Keith, Merrick Schincariol , Apress
b. Pro JPA 2: Mastering the Java Persistence API By Mike Keith, Merrick Schincariol , Apress

I am a bit confused. Are these two different books OR "Pro JPA 2" book is successor of "Pro EJB.3 Java Persistence API"?

Which is better book to buy ?

Thanks
Abhay

Yes. Buy the JPA one since it is more recent.
