    I can only speak from personal experience ... which is not much yet, but I really have enjoyed and learned alot from Eric Meyer on CSS and More Eric Meyer on CSS, because each chapter is another project that you can work along with the book on, and it is done in a very readable, relaxed sort of way.

    The one I think gives the best examples is "The Art & Science Of CSS" which can be easily found via the Books link at the top of this page.

    And he already said he can't buy books from SitePoint's Web site anyway...

    (resumes replying to the original poster)

    Now you might be able to find the book in store shelves, but given that I don't know where you are, I can't say that for certain. You may want to look into the CSS Cookbook by Christopher Schmitt though (O'Reilly). That's the only one that really comes to mind (aside from SitePoint's books), but it's been a couple years since I've touched a real hard-core CSS book.

    Nope, those all suck!

    The best book on the market covering web standards, semantic markup and CSS is Dan Cederholm's Bulletproof Web Design by a wide margin

    If you are a beginner, I recommend "HTML Utopia: Designing Without Tables Using CSS". If you already understand HTML and basic CSS syntax, I recommend "The CSS Anthology 2nd Edition".

    You can check out the reviews on amazon.com. They do happen to be sitepoint books. But you can get them at amazon.com, ebay.com etc. I have also seen them on the shelves of local book stores (in my area at least).
