My favourite swing book is "Definitive Guide to Swing for Java 2" from John Zukowski...
Here's a similar request in this forum: http://www.javaranch.com/ubb/Forum2/HTML/002727.html

Java Swing from O'Reilly publishers and Core JFC from Prentice Hall Press are very good books. Java Swing is more of an advance reference whereas Core JFC is a learn by examples book.

Sun Microsystems Press's Swing book written by Gosling and others is best....

I know that this doesn't answer your question, but me as a not very versatile gui-programmer found the Swing trail of the Java Tutorial downloadable from Sun more useful than expected.

The author on Swing is David Geary. Zukowksi's good, but Geary's seen it all from the inside and he develops his examples with a great deal of forethought. Check out his book here.
I just went looking for a Bunkhouse review; blows me away that we haven't covered him. I will get to fixing that straight away.

Actually, I just picked up the 3rd edition of Geary's book, Graphic Java 2 : Mastering the JFC Volume 2 - Swing over the Christmas holidays at a used book store (just $10!!! ). I'm currently reading through it and it looks great! Michael, if you haven't started working on that review yet, I would be happy to write one after I finish! (Though that might be awhile since the book is thick! )
