The Missing Manual seems to be on many peoples favorite list, and covers CSS thoroughly + almost everything else.
For CS3:
http://www.dreamweaverclub.com/books/0596510438/Dreamweaver_CS3_The_Missing_Manual.html
For DW8:
http://www.dreamweaverclub.com/books/0596100566/Dreamweaver_8_The_Missing_Manual.html

Which version are you using?

Sitepoint books are great time and time again: http://www.sitepoint.com/books/cssref1/

That new Sitepoint book is a pure CSS reference, which is mostly useful for people that already know the absics of CSS. The CSS reference started as an online reference, and you'll see what I mean if you go to it: http://reference.sitepoint.com/css

As for Sitepoint, they made an excellent book pertaining to CSS and DW8, although I'd probably give the Missing Manual a try first.

Eric Meyer - God of CSS...:mrgreen:

In a followup to his popular Eric Meyer on CSS (http://www.ericmeyeroncss.com/), Eric A. Meyer, regarded by many as the most experienced CSS master working today, pairs his knowledge of CSS, HTML, and browser capabilities with a carefully developed hands-on-learning method to provide you with 10 full-color projects that help you learn through example rather than theory. Each of the projects is cross-browser compatible in modern browsers and provides you with numerous opportunities to experiment with the concepts presented:
