Default animation books

Hello friends,
I'm going to buy an animation book but I don't know which to choose between :
Maya Character Animation, 2nd Edition by Jae-Jin Choi
and
Learning Maya 6 | Character Rigging by Alias
someone knows them?

Thanks to all

"Learning maya" books are very borring. don't buy them!
They explain each and every option of every tool but they don't "teach" you how to use the tools, just what they do.
Personaly, i like books that show you what tools do by guiding you through projects.

Yea, don't buy the Alias Learning books.
The tutorials are sometimes hard to follow because there are a lot of typos and they really didn't update for versions 6.

I have also heard that the new Learning books for version six are nothing new. But, the Learning Maya 6 Unlimited is worth buying.

Digital Character Animiation by George Maestri is a classic, though not specifically Maya.
