Any suggestions for a good book that teaches DSLR videography. Everything from filming to post-production. I'm using a t2i and Adobe Premiere/after effects. I'm willing to switch programs if the book requires me to. I have no knowledge of post-production and minimal knowledge of filming.
I'm not looking to start a videography business, just would like to learn. I keep having to patch together information from many resources and it would be awesome to have something to build a good foundation.

Hi umar – the best value for your money is probably "Digital SLR Video and Filmmaking for Dummies", which you can download to Kindle for $16.49. It covers everything from writing your script, to pre-production, to shooting with your DSLR, to post-production and editing with Adobe Premiere.
Hope this is close to what you're looking for – and good luck!

Ryan Koo has an ebook (PDF) called "The DSLR Cinematography Guide" that's a pretty good introduction / survey of the subject. If you go to NoFilmSchool.com and scroll to the end of the page, you can get the ebook by subscribing to his mailing list.

I'd add to the previous comments–look at the resources available on this site. There are a number of videos that cover videography with a DSLR, and they are quite good.
