I'd say stick with the online materials. When I started using the Ogre engine, there were a few times when I was confused on something, and I tried to find the answer in that book. And, every time I tried, I was disappointed. The book doesn't have any more detail than the online tutorials and API docs.

Here are 2 things I'd recommend to help learn Ogre:

1) Set up a Firefox keyword that leads to the API reference.

2) Download the source. Ogre's source code is pretty readable. Tag it up with ctags or something, so that it's easy to navigate.
