    Yes, you could but the meaning would be different:

    We hope that you'll enjoy working with this book.
    We hope that you'll enjoy working with (the help) of this book.

    We hope that you'll enjoy working on this book.
    We hope you'll enjoy writing this book.

    Hope this helps.

    Re: With / on

    I have similar question. Is there any difference between:

    1. Do you have any money on you?
    2. Do you have any money with you?

    Thanks

    1. Do you have any money on you?
    In other words:

    Do you have any money on your person? Do you have any in your pockets, or in your jacket for instance.

    2. Do you have any money with you?
    Doesn't necessarily imply that the money is on the person. It could be nearby, as long as it's still readily accessible.

    -Do you any money on you?
    -I don't have any money on me, I left it at the house.

    -Do you have any money with you?
    -Yeah, I got some in my car.
