Update 10/11/2017:

The original book's website is not responding. A mirror is available at CinePaint.org. The book is OPL licensed, so I guess it's OK to link to a mirror. The download link has been updated.

Book excerpts:

First thing to say: this book is not merely about tips and tricks, and it's not a collection of recipes for solving someone's favorite image manipulation problems. It is first about understanding image manipulation concepts, second about knowing which GIMP tools are most effective, and third about the savvy use of these tools.

This book covers many areas of working with digital images, including touchup and enhancement, compositing, 3D rendering, and the presentation of graphics on the World Wide Web. This book also gives a unified and in-depth introduction to layers, selections, masks, colorspaces, and the use of blending modes.

:) "I must say that this is a great reference book. It covers everything you need to know about using the GIMP in a clear, concise manner that anyone can understand with good practical examples."
