Can anyone recommend a good cruising guide to Santa Catalina Island and surrounding area?

I purchased "Cruising Guide to Central and Southern California", but it seems a little out of date.  Can anyone recommend a better reference guide?

Strict Catalina and perhaps a bit old but very helpful:

Here's a useful guide for anchoring in Catalina, but includes a lot of additional information about Catalina anchorages too:

An excellent guide.  Updated information.

What sort of cruising are you looking to do? Just to Catalina Island, or to the Channel Islands and even farther north?
