Does the book deal with any swing issues like changing the appearance of buttons (shape, olour)?
I already have the Manning Swing book (2nd ed). Would this one add much?
is this an introductory or a more advanced book?

It covers customizing components in general, but not customizing buttons in particular. As for the level, I'd call it a beginner-to-advanced book that covers a lot of topics, but not usually in depth. More info is in my post in the Book Topics Covered topic. (I hope that link works.)
