Book on CSS

I've been looking at getting a book on CSS. I've heard that The CSS Anthology by Rachel Andrew is very good. Any input?
What I'm looking for is something to help me with postioning. I have the hardest time postioning things in CSS.
Instead of buying a book this info is free:

Just guess and test a little with positioning after a little frustration you will have it.
Yes, the WC3 schools are very informative. I use them when I need an answer quick.

I want a book.

By the way, think I'll start a thread on On-line tutorials vs. books.

To be brief, I just perfer a book when I really want to learn something. I can't bring my computer to work and surf the web at break...I could use the company computer, but then that could lead some troubles from the higher ups.
And, there's just something about a good author's writing and descriptions vs. a bunch of data on the screen.
Why pay money and kill trees when you can use the interenet?

What? Do you hate trees? Do you like spending money on something you could get for free? Hmmm?
Well, I haven't actually read them but I believe Eric Meyer on CSS and More Eric Meyer on CSS by Eric Meyer are good choices. Another more advanced option which focuses more on the visual design aspects of CSS is The Zen of CSS Design by Dave Shea (creator of the css Zen Garden)and Molly E. Holzschlag. And if you want a book about web standards in general along with CSS tips, try Web Standards Solutions by Dan Cederholm. I own the last two books so I know that they are very good books to have.

I've heard Eric Meyer's books are good. I've also looked at a couple of his articles on various websites.

I'm just wondering how old is his last book?
