This SitePoint book uses PDO in its examples.  Ignore the hokey title -- it's a good book.

The 2007 book by marqusG seems very specific and Ray has recommended his book previously.

Has pdo been updated since 2006/2007

AFAIK the core is foundamental unmodified: the book gives you all you need to use it. But as you said is very specific: for examples of use the SitePoint book is very good.

PDO ships with PHP 5.1, and is available as a PECL extension for PHP 5.0; PDO requires the new OO features in the core of PHP 5, and so will not run with earlier versions of PHP.
PDO has been available in PHP since November 2005.
