Buy the Steadicam EFP training DVD from TIffen. The switch (and many other useful topics) are covered well. $20 well-spent, especially if you can't make it to a workshop.

The EFP-training DVD is funny and nice,
also Jerrys book "steadicam operators handbook" is a good start. All basics(position,switch,...) with many pictures.
But i think a workshop/or some instruction-training with an operator, is the best way to start into steadicamworld.

Greetings,
chris
