Beginners books on SSIS

I would like to learn and do some practical packages. Please do suggest appropriate books for me. Thanks.

Please note that I'm using VS 2010 and SQL Server 2008 R2.

Well, there is quite a few resources around ranging from MS press, all the way through to youtube.

Some good starting places are : http://download.microsoft.com/download/a/c/d/acd8e043-d69b-4f09-bc9e-4168b65aaa71/ssis2008Intro.doc and a tutorial : http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms169917.aspx (look at topics on the LHS of page - and the external videos link down the very bottom might be interesting - have not looked though)

And the developers guide : http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms136025(v=sql.100).aspx 
and notice the link down the bottom to Developer InfoCenter :http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms137709(v=sql.100).aspx

The above gives you all the corresponding links to samples, the manual et al...

And codeproject also has a multipart series : http://www.codeproject.com/Articles/155829/SQL-Server-Integration-Services-SSIS-Part-1-Basics albeit starting with 2005 but easy to read and easy to follow...

Then there is Jason's 31 days of SSIS : http://www.jasonstrate.com/2011/01/31-days-of-ssis-the-introduction/  which is more "sample" than an intro course as such.

I would be inclined to start from the top down, and then can go find more "practical" or advanced subject matter.

Have fun ! SSIS is extraordinarily powerful and sometimes quite frustrating - all the best ingredients for a developer :)
