On our first thruhike, I rewrote the guides for a northbound hike - but then we ended up going south after all. On our second hike I just used the JW guides, even though we were going north. For me, it wasn't a problem. Some people are good at translating guidebooks to the ground, others aren't. I love guidebooks. My husband loves maps. Together, we do just fine. One thing with the JW books - in some areas you need both the original book and the addendum. Don't carry just one or the other - you need both. It is more work - but worth it in the end. I crossed out the sections in the book that had become obsolete so I wouldn't confuse the two.
