Spring book recommendation

Hi all,
I need your recommendation for a book about Spring.

So far, I've heard about those three:
1. Professional Java Development with the Spring Framework
2. Pro Spring
3. Spring In Action

I'm not looking for a bible, but a pleasant intro to the Spring world.
So I think that number 1 is not for me.
What about the other two ?
Number 2 is over 800 pages, whereas number 3 is about half thiner.
I'm tempted by number 3, so if anybody who has read it could tell me how it is.

Thank you.
