What book should I get to follow up on Herb Schildt's Swing: A Beginner's Guide? Robinson & Vorobiev, 2nd edition from 2003 looks like the clear choice but is there anything newer than that?

In some areas one would expect six-year-old computer book to be out of date,
but I think you'll be fine with Robinson & Vorobiev 2nd edition. Swing just hasn't
changed much since then. Swing did have some substantiial changes before that,
so I wouldn't recommend the first edition.

The same is true of my Swing book. I recommend the second edition (2002) but
not the first edition (1998).

The best thing after a substantiation knowledge gain from Swing. Use the Java API and can do all tricks and magic with practice.

Ultimately it depends upon the how much practice we do.
