First of is there a good alternative to Smach? If not then is there a better set of tutorials than the official ROS option?

The Book Ros By Example Volume 2 has a pretty good tutorial on Smach. Plus it also has an alternative approach call pi_trees (behavior tree)

To my knowledge there is no alternative to Smach. But I might be wrong.

Yep, the tutorial are good but they don't cover all that is possible with Smach. There is quite a few question around here that explain how to do more stuff with it (but I can't seem to find them again) and I have a repo on Github where I use Smach if you'd like to see but I'm not sure it's going to be really useful.

This file expecially. I know there is a good trick into this that made Smach more powerful but I used it quite a long time ago and I don't quite remember what the trick is :P.

It's pretty sad there is not more tutorial about it.

I am pretty sure the book(ROS by Example Vol 2) is aimed towards hydro, would it still be a worthwhile pickup?
