Book about technique?

Hi guys! Can someone recommend me a good book which has correct technique for those famous compound movements: deadlift, squat, bench press, press...
I want to have everything in one place, I'm looking for something that would go into details because, for me, it's more important to not get injured than to increase weight because exercising is my hobby, not a job. Example for deadlift:
- straight lower back so we don't get hernias
- straight arms so we don't rip our biceps
- head neutral so it can put a spine in nice position
- variations for powerlifting and weightlifting
- grips

Books that I think are perfect for their area (just to contribute a little bit), that I use are:
Building the Gymnastic Body - Christopher Sommer
Relax into Stretch Instant Flexibility through Mastering Muscle Tension - Pavel Tsatsouline

Starting Strength covers the lifts you mentioned and a sizable portion of the book is devoted to technique.

Thanks Stu, we can always count on you :)
I'm really sad that I didn't have this book earlier, it would save me many hours of searching some sites and other books... But maybe it's better this way.
