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

Zen Book - Good, but not a primer

CSS Missing Manual - seems to get high reviews

Head First HTML/CSS - not pure CSS book, but has a good mix

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