Wish for your good luck here.

It's available from amazon.com at about half price (USD20).

Personally I would avoid books, which are always out of date, and go with online materials.
Oracle's "official" Java tutorials are excellent - not easy, but comprehensive and authoritative, and free. http://docs.oracle.com/javase/tutorial/uiswing/index.html

books about core concepts are ok. Swing isn't changing much, and hasn't changed much in years, so a book is good.

The main problem with books is books about The Next Big Thing (tm)(r) as such things tend to not last long enough for books to be written about them that are more than rubbish before the hype blows over.

jwenting plz give me link to download for best and easy book of swing i am waiting

no, we're not going to help you to pirated books and other stolen property.

also realize: Swing is not a "package" it's a FrameWork.
but, one good advice, if you truly want to learn Swing development: do NOT use any code generators or UI builders like the one NetBeans offers (even if it is shown in the official tutorials of Oracle).

writing a decent UI takes that bit more work than just "drag-n-drop". not to mention the flaws that are in it.

oracle is very difficult i can not understand it. give me easy way to learn swing and i am not using netbeans.

normally, each decent textbook on Java 'll have a chapter on Swing programming. of course, it may not be as detailed as you would like, but it teaches you the basics you need to know.
