If you do not have an earlier version of a Mac OS Missing Manual or never had a chance to look at one: it is rather hefty, but don't let that put you off. Unlike a help menu - which seems to presume you know what you are looking for - you will find this manual readable, full of detailed information on almost every user-accessible feature in the operating system and its collection of programs.
Is this manual perfect, no, but what book is? For example, if your thing is "scanning", you'll find scanning listed in the Table of Contents in Chapter 14's title. I found nothing about scanning in this chapter; instead, I found scanning buried in Chapter 10 under the subtitle "Image Capture" pages 398 to 401.
Overall: The coverage of this Lion Missing Manual (first edition) is extensive and well written. It is a great book for sitting back, flipping through the pages, until something catches your eye, and then ... hey, that's cool!
I have found The Missing Manual indispensable when I need a quick answer to a question or issue especially in the wee hours of the morning. The Missing Manual is not something I would read from cover to cover. I simply use it as a look-up reference resource. Note, my m.o. is to use The Missing Manual as a supplemental resource along with various assorted on-line resources. Of course, as many of you know, on-line resources can get convoluted with off-point replies and discussions so having The Missing Manual keeps me on-point.
I am of the "old school" so I still have a preference for good ol' paper books when it comes to large reference books like Mac OS X Lion: The Missing Manual. There is nothing like breaking in the spine of a large reference book! Note, I do read "for enjoyment/entertainment" eBooks on my eReader.
Overall, The Missing Manual is a must have for me when making major software changes as with Mac OS X Lion.
You will not be disappointed.
