The other day I had a chance to grab the official guide from Prima for $2.00

The only section in it that was worth the effort was the section with ship descriptions. However, as I read it I realized that the ship info was way off.

Since we have a great player guide, could we get a ship description add-on to go along with it. Or even better what about a strategy guide that is actually useful?

Proper Published Strategy Guides rarely work for MMORPGs.

When EVE went live, the Strategy Guide was already out of date. MMORPGs move too fast for a Guides to be useful, as things have invariably been tweaked in the meantime (damage, tracking, ranges - armor repairing is another that springs to mind).

I'm sure the Players Guide that appeared briefly will be put back up in due time, and it will continue to get added/updated, from what I've been told :)

Eve's strategy guide is the worst one I've ever seen. As far as accuracy goes.

There will always be tweaks and new content but Eve unlike other MMOs has never really left beta. I think CCP is calming down the vast sweeping changes but this game has gone through more changes then anything I've played before. Mostly in a bad ways though.

The best thing is usually the fansites, although they're not built up like a strategy guide, they usually have a lot of guides and similar.
