I think recent developments (e.g. Commercial grade triplestores, SPARQL 1.1, JSON-LD, RDFa, Schema.org, the BBC, etc.) are clearly demonstrating that the underlying technology is genuinely mature enough now - but the problem of *explaining* the underlying concepts and ideas, and how to apply them as a work-a-day developer, still remains.
I found the book 'The Semantic Web for the Working Ontologist' ([...] to be a giant leap forward in filling this gap - but this book by Bob DuCharme finally gave rise to my Eureka! moment for *working with RDF as a developer*. This book almost completely ignores any 'theory' behind RDF, instead jumping straight into just-using-it. As you work through the very simple early examples, Bob brilliantly demonstrates practical benefits of using RDF to model your data, and then it's a no-brainer to understand why you'd use SPARQL to query that data.
So not only would I highly recommend this book for someone wanting to learn SPARQL - I'd recommend it to anyone who simply wants to understand what RDF is, why you should consider it, or to understand the potential of the Semantic Web (or Linked Data) in general.
Nobody so clearly describes SPARQL as Bob DuCharme. His prose is clear and his examples feel realistic. The book is useful enough to earn a spot on my bookshelf - and it gets used even though I can and do also read the W3C specifications. Sometimes this book is just easier to read.
Newcomers to SPARQL will greatly prefer to start with this book before diving deeper into the specifications.
