I didn’t even know this book existed until I saw it in one of the weekly emails Daz sends out.
Apparently this official guide was written last March (2009) and it covers DazStudio 2.3. Even back then I was probably a little beyond the basics of the book. I spent many frustrating hours in the previous years coming to grips with this program.

Just to put this out there, DazStudio 3 has been out for several months now, so this book is somewhat outdated even at less than a year old. Still, I see many people on the Daz forums who are using version 2 so it could be worth your while if you’re interested in getting to know this posing program. For about $20.00 (US) I guess that’s not too bad.
Whenever I’m going to buy a book, or pretty much anything, I’ll check on Amazon to see if anyone left any reviews. Here’s the link to the Amazon page for this book where several customers have left some feedback:
Anyway, it is nice to see some companion documentation. The program comes with an over 400 page user guide, but many still seem to have issues with it (including me). At this point I wouldn’t pick up this book, but there could still be some valid info in there for anyone just starting out.
It would be nice to see one of these come out for Daz 3, but it would be even better if they would fix some of the bugs first. It a great program for free but they can still polish this thing up a little.
For now, it’s back to my regularly scheduled Blender work…
