I had also purchased "Top 10 Seattle (Eyewitness Top 10 Travel Guides)" - DK Publishing, and barely ended up using that one at all. I found the details in this Frommer's guide to be much more helpful.
I am usually very dependent on my car, but we parked at the hotel on Thursday near the space needle, and were able to rely entirely on walking and buses through Sunday. Having the map on the inside cover of this book was really helpful. One thing I did find that I needed was bus-stops for the main routes we were using. Particularly the bus 99 (free/waterfront) route is currently different than the book showed (and honestly most of Metro's documentation showed, so it must be a very new thing). I went to Metro's site for the latest info and used a marker to update the map. I also added in bus stops for a couple of the key routes.
I enjoyed this book so much that I plan to even purchase the one for my local area ... it has lots of little hidden tidbits of history and sites, and I think it will be fun to be a tourist at home, too. :)
