Here's one of the best laid out books covering Photoshop. Shortcuts are with tutorials, pages are full of material and illustrations are sharp and reproduced clearly. The areas covered are thorough, with good visual explanations and there's no waffle in the text. The only flaw si that everything is greyscale so you can't see what's going on well enough when it comes to colour adjustments, blend modes etc. I'm not sure how much the book would have to be if printed in colour but I'm sure it owuld be worthwhile. Afetr all we are covering a photographic subject which deserves the attention. Oddly one area that is in colour is a 32 page selection of unnecessary self indulgent illustration works in the centre. While most are high quality and well produced they do not have any relevance to the rest of the book, other than the fact they are created in Photoshop! Had a few been covered in a step-by-step approach it would have made the inclusion worth while.
