I was wondering if any one could offer me some advice as to the best resources out there (ideally books) on google analytics. I have a basic understanding but have a lot of room for improvement.

The following book "Advanced Web Metrics with Google Analytics" by Brian Clifton, appears to be a good starting but but is already quite dated, even though published in march 2010.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

You can get a lot from Google's own videos: http://www.youtube.com/googleanalytics?hl=en

There is a blog, with an index of resources: http://analytics.blogspot.com/

They also have an education area: http://www.google.com/analytics/education.html
