My book shows this sign as the right hand coming off the top of the left hand instead of in front of the left hand.

I agree with Anthony. I learned it as coming off the top of the hand. Not the end.

How do you tell the difference from 1 dollar, 5 dollar, 10 dollar? Does the amount come before, during or after signing the dollar sign?

$1 - $9 are signed without using the DOLLAR sign.  You begin with the number sign, palm facing away from you, pointing generally upright, then twist it towards you (similarly to ordinal numbers, ie: FIRST, SECOND, THIRD, etc)  So $5 would be signed with a hand spread wide, palm facing the audience, then twisting until the palm faces the signer, almost like FIFTH.  After $9, starting with $10, you sign the number normally, then sign DOLLAR as above.  So $11 would be signed by a closed fist, palm facing the signer, flicking the index finger up twice (11) and then signing DOLLAR.
