Like the others, my answer is yes.
In general books or paid tutorials get more in depth with certain subjects (I really 'digg' the ones that are using practical examples).
Not all of them are good, and in some cases you're better serviced by free resources (I still remember fondly Symfony 1's Jobeet) .
As an alternative, I really like initiatives of paying contributors to open source projects like Chris Fritz
