Book resources for someone learning to play the piano again.

Haven't played piano in over 20 years, although I was good at it at the time. Looking for recommendations of books to help me learn again.

I bought a fancy new digital piano that I've been dying to play so I'm looking for books to help me learn again. I bought this book used and while I like it, it didn't come with an accompanying CD it was supposed to have. I'd prefer to have books that don't require CDs. I also don't mind going back to the basic basics. Looking through the book I have now, I only recall a few bits of knowledge, otherwise everything is foreign to me. Maybe I'd be better suited for a few piano lessons to get me started, but for now, I'm looking for some books. Thanks in advance.

This book is kind of austere, but it seems to me that anyone who spends about a year working through it would have a very solid basis.

What about "Teach Yourself to Play Piano" by Willard A. Palmer.

How to Play the Piano Despite Years of Lessons is supposed to be good for this - I think I saw it recommended here on AskMe a while ago and bought it but haven't got round to using it so can't comment on whether it works!
