Hi,
Can anyone recommend a good java book on swing?

I'm not looking for a reference book. I'm still a beginner and the reference books dont have enough explainations and tutorials.

I'm interested in a book with good explainations and tutorials that is good for beginners.

Thanks in advance.

Java Bunkhouse has some recommendations: http://www.javaranch.com/bunkhouse/bunkhouseSwing.jsp
I had referred to Swing book by Herbert Schildt and found it to be good reference.
Also you can try to use the Official tutorials on Swing: http://download.oracle.com/javase/tutorial/uiswing/

Thanks I'll take a look at the Bunkhouse.
I've used the Official tutorials on Swing, but it can get difficult to understand sometimes becase I'm a beginner.
