Judo for Mixed Martial Arts by Karo Parisyan
I just saw this in the book store today and took a look through it. In a lot of ways it's your standard MMA technique book, but obviously a lot of it is dedicated towards how to use Judo throws without a gi, both from the clinch and how to set them up with strikes. His throws as shown in the book aren't the most technical, but this seems like a great book for those who want to expand their repertoire of no gi take downs.
Video was better. If you don't already have a good base technique don't bother using it.
I wouldn't doubt it, but I tend to go for the budget option, and after almost two years of Judo I'd like to think my base technique is at least decent.
Shinya Aoki also has a really great tutorial on judo for MMA out there.
No gi judo is a lot of fun, IMHO, and I sometimes find it easier to understand the kuzushi when using no-gi grips (For example, osotogari from an over-under).
There's over an hour of Judo for BJJ here

Not MMA, but might be of interest
2 years of Judo? Go for it.
i ordered that on june 19th and im still waiting impatiently for it, initial reviews that I've read about the book were all positive, yet another example of how victory pub knows what it's doin...
It's a good book. Although my Judo experience is spread out, I've hit more Judo without the Gi then with it. For some reason, I can just do the throw when sparring, however, it's a lot harder for me to break the throws down into individual steps.
Back to the book, many of the throws can be found on the video. One thing I found in the book that he didn't emphasize in the videos was the concept of balance breaking. The video does show it but he really doesn't go into detail about it. In the book, he does. This gives you an idea of what you should be doing to break their balance so you are not muscling the throw.
My current view of the book is that it will help more in adding details to what you already have then it would if you are a beginner trying to pick up Judo for the first time. Unlike wrestling where it just feels natural to grab someone's legs/body and drive into them, it's not really natural turning into someone for a hip throw or foot trip.
That guy has some seriously ugly technique.
