They all are okay. I haven't been able to find a "good" one. All should be good enough for what you need. They cover the basics and will set you in the right direction. Take all three and go sit in a comfy lawn chair and decide which one will help YOU the most.
You should be able to get all the info you need off this forum. There are some very good tile setters on this board. I wish some of them would write a book so I could learn some more and move up to their level.
Later

So you don't learn any bad habits I'm going to recommend "Tile Your World" by John Bridge. Don't buy that Home Depot book.

Alot of do's, alot of don'ts, depends on the project.

John's book is the only one you should read, forget the others.
