If you are looking for a book describing Mathematica 6 specific features 
such as dynamic interactivity (Dynamic, Manipulate, ...), the new 
graphic engine, etc., I am not aware of any.

Speaking about "comprehensive", nothing is more comprehensive than the 
four volumes of The Mathematica Guidebook, by by Michael Trott, 

http://www.mathematicaguidebooks.org/

Highly recommended for anyone who is serious about understanding 
Mathematica and mathematics as well, for the examples are usually not 
trivial. The web site contains many resources that should give you a 
good idea of what this beast is about. (Note that The Mathematica 
Guidebook should be updated for version 6 at some point in 2009).

In addition, I would recommend:
