Tarun Lalwani's book QuickTest Professional Unplugged covers QTP basic as well as advanced features.
I have used QTP since 2001 (version 6.x) and if I have had this book from the start, a lot of hours and frustration had been saved.
Tarun has prior the book, contributed to the QTP community with numerous of high quality articles and forum post replies over the years. I recall an old article about Descriptive programming (DP) which made me switch from OR to DP Big-bang style (I don't regret it...).
My favorite parts in the book are the chapters regarding RegExp, IE/Word/Excel objects, HTML DOM and of course the advanced section at the end. But this book include a lot of other QTP/VBScript features as well and is well suited both for newbies (you should have some programming experience at least) and advanced users.
This is a must have for any person using QTP and/or VBScript-based automation!
