Spring In Action or Pro Spring would be a good start. You can check some reviews at the bunkhouse.

There are actually some very good introductory tutorials on the Spring website that you might want to check out as well, just to get your feet wet.

+1 for Spring in Action

I've read Pro Spring 2.5, too and I don't like it

spring in Action has very old code and so does the web site. You might want to try out tutorials from the web site but refer to the current documentation since methods have been changed!!
