Hi all,
I'm really trying to get a good hold on CSS, and I was wondering if there's a definitive book that will really help me understand CSS. Thanks.

Well normally I would point you to the JavaRanch bunkhouse, but there are really no reviews of pure CSS books there.

Definite Guide: some beginners find it still a little too advanced
http://www.amazon.com/CSS-Definitive-Guide-Eric-Meyer/dp/0596527330/jr_bunk-20

Zen Book - Good, but not a primer

http://www.amazon.com/Zen-CSS-Design-Visual-Enlightenment/dp/0321303474/jr_bunk-20

CSS Missing Manual - seems to get high reviews
http://www.amazon.com/CSS-Missing-Manual-David-McFarland/dp/0596526873/jr_bunk-20

Head First HTML/CSS - not pure CSS book, but has a good mix
http://www.amazon.com/Head-First-HTML-CSS-XHTML/dp/059610197X/jr_bunk-20

I like "Eric Meyer on CSS" and "More Eric Meyer on CSS".

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
