Depends. How long are you at the Verdon, and will you climb anywhere else? The Cote d'Azur guide from Rockfax has a pretty good Verdon section that served us well. It covers climbing from La Tourbie to the Calanques, so is limited by the wide scope, but it is accurate, detailed, and will get you around the Verdon and to the classics. You can also pick up a La Bouche miniguide at the Pericot Vert in La Palud. La Bouche is a great single pitch cragging area on the North side of the Gorge, and is well worth checking out.
If you plan on spending more than a couple of weeks at the Verdon, and not go anywhere else, I'd say find a dedicated Verdon book.
