If you bought Poser 6 as a download, rather than a retail box with the manual, then "The Official Guide" is a servicable replacement for the user guide. But if you already have the manual, then the only reason to buy this book is if you want a complete description of all the rooms, menus, and settings in a more user-friendly format. "Poser 6 Revealed" reveals very little except what's already in the manual or the help menus. It's complete and it's useful as a quick reference when you want to thumb through pages to find out what a particular dial does, but it contains nothing in the way of tutorials or useful advice on how to create or render Poser figures. This is NOT a book about how to use Poser to create digital art -- it's a book about how to use Poser, period. In its favor, it is better-written and more visually oriented than the manual, but if you're already familiar with Poser, or you learn better by just playing around with settings, then there isn't much reason to own this book.

There are some folks who like to piddle around in a program to figure out how it works and have a good foundation for doing so from other programs they've used. But I bought this book on the recommendation of those reviewers who praised the "basic approach" that it takes. I don't have a manual for Poser 6. I don't even have Poser 6. But spending $17.24 for this book and downloading a demo of Poser 6 is far less expensive than buying the full program for $250 and finding out it isn't what I thought it was or it's far more intricate than what I need. Even if I opt to buy Poser 7, the fundamental structure of the program is not likely to change that much. But there is another advantage to this book. Even in programs I've used for years, by reading books which focus on the fundamentals I often find keystrokes, menus or features I had no idea were there. If you already know Poser 6, you might be disappointed. But if you're new to the program and want to know what hoops you'll have to jump through to produce those fabulous looking images you see in ads and high end "show and tell" books, you might consider this book and dowloading the demo from [...]. It will go a long way toward giving you some idea what you're in for.

I bought this book just after buying Poser 6. I am a new user of Poser, and I still found it quite useless. This book is just a rehash of almost exactly what is in the reference manual that comes with the software. In fact I think there are sections where some of the information is practically "verbatim" from the reference manual. That said, it actually covers the material from the reference manual in "less" detail rather than more. :(

This book is largely a waste of money, it's only redeeming qualities are a few "somewhat" useful sidebars that have some specific instructions to 'test' certain functionality out. This is not enough to justify the cost of this book in my mind.

I'm very disappointed, and very surprised there are such "glowing" reviews for this book. I expect these glowing reviews are from people who either: expect way too little, are friends of the author or publishers, are the author or publishers themselves, or are people who are completely uninformed of what a good book is.

The only reason to purchase this book is if you don't have a copy of the reference manual because you downloaded the software or bought it second hand.

P.S. This is the first review I've ever posted on Amazon.com. Typically I don't post my opinion anywhere but I was so disappointed with this book I felt it necessary to inform people so they hopefully don't make the same mistake I did in purchasing it.

This introduciton to Poser 6 is well written and more lucid than the manual that actually ships with the Poser 6 software. I reccomend it for anyone who has never used Poser before and anyone upgrading from Poser 4 with or without ProPack and Poser Artist. The reason I advise the upgraders to read it is that so much has changed in poser since version 4 that it can be confusing. Familiar tools have been moved and those that haven't may not work the same way as it did in prior version. The rendering engine and dialogue has been completely redone, while the material, cloth and hair rooms are complex--especially for those who haen't seen them before. I like this book because it is easy to understand and doesn't predispose that a person has had any 3D experience.
