The best book I have seen on Swing is Swing by Matt Robinson and Pavel Vorobiev.
In India it costs arount Rs. 500 (INR)
BTW, if it's only abt event handling, any decent book on AWT or core Java wil do a nice job. Most of the events in Swing are from java.awt.event*
Also, you can download Swing trail from Java tutorial for free. The URL is -
