Although there are many good books on SSIS, I don't own more than 3. For a beginner, I'd recommend the following book. This is the only Training Kit book I own. You do not need to prepare for the MCTS Exam to own this book.
Through a series of lessons and reviews, the book covers learning objectives, reinforces and applys the lessons through real-world case scenarios and practice exercises.
The book covers all three Microsoft BI stacks, SSIS, SSAS and SSRS. A third of the book is devoted to SSIS.
