Pretty sure the answer is no. In fact I don't think there has _ever_ been a valuable book on chess programming.(*) On the other hand there are a bunch of open source projects, you could pick one and examine the code, just be careful to adhere to the license. And there are a bunch of papers online about miscellaneous chess programming topics like bitboards, search, et cetera, although usually without code samples.

Edited:
(*)In English at least.

Fairly recent books on chess programming?

As subject above, are there any valuable, fairly recent books on chess programming, with code samples or complete code (not just general principles on AI, algorithms, etc.)?
