can you read japanese?
guide books by brady games are a complete joke.
they are woefully incomplete and sometimes the information is inaccurate, though that's what you get when you compile a book like this thru trial and error.
the ultimania series in japan are books released in conjunction with square, which means that not only are they disturbingly complete (upwards of 1000 pages), all the info is verified by the game's program.
it's too bad american gamers don't have any decent resources, though gamefaqs is not bad (albeit less handy since you have to scroll around for stuff)

Talk about leaving no stone unturned. This strategy guide covers absolutely everything about Final Fantasy X, from the various enemies you come across through the game to the battle skills that can be learned by your characters.
Beautiful illustration and layout are the norm for this book. There really is no substitution.

Not the Greatest
This isn't the greatest guide I've ever read. While playing the game, I discovered several Save Spheres not listed, and a few Al Bhed Primers. There wasn't much help on hard-to-beat fiends (for instance, the Sand Worm in the Sanubia Desert), and only a few fiends got any spotlight at all. I probably died more on fiends than on bosses! Also, I found it hard to Customize things when the book instructed (e.g. when it said: equip all characters with items with SOS Regen), when it didn't tell you what you needed to customize. Oh yeah, and for some reason, the guide told me at a certain point near the begginging of the game for Lulu to use Fira...which would be pretty much impossible to have at the time unless you went hunting for fiends to fight for a few hours. The maps were a bit confusing, but I liked how it didn't give away many spoilers :)
