Opinions on Maya Rigging Books and DVD's

I recently purchased an AW video titled "Rigging a Character’s Face for Animation". I was happy with the video as it got me thinking of a few things on a character rig I had not thought of before. I was also SUPER impressed with the MEL script it has gotten me addicted to, "Attribute Collection". How did I live before this thing.

Now I am considering purchasing either Jason S's "Maya Techniques | Fast Animation Rigs" DVD, or the AW Book titled "Learning Maya | Character Rigging and Animation". I've been impressed with Jason here in the forum, but the DVD is pricey at $129.00 (plus whatever tax and shipping). Can anyone here give me a review of either of these items? I consider myself a int/adv user, and I'm looking to learn rigging beyond just the basics.

Thanks, -=STZ=-
