JavaScript The Definitive Guide:

This is the only book I would trust.  It covers jQuery as well in the 
later chapters (6th edition only).  On top of that it is an excellent 
resource to read if you are delving into Node.js and want to learn more 
about closures, callback functions, and real inner workings of EMCA 
script and how it applies to client side as well as server programming.
