Can anybody recommend a good guide to Lightroom 4.2 i've not used Lightroom before but feel I need more contol over effects (contrast; shadows, b & w conversions etc) than Elements allows. Thanks for your help!

I would recommend the Martin Evening one. Amazon link
or the Digital Negative by Jeff Schewe. Amazon link.
The Luminous Landscape video tutorials are good too.
I use Scott Kelby's book - some people don't like his attempts at humour but there you go...
The other main one is martin Evening's books - I have one of his earleri books on RAW editing and it is much more 'factual' presentation.
These books take you step by step through the menus, but there are other books that come from the 'how do I do...' angle though I have not tried any of these for LR (I found some of the PSE ones really helpful).
I'd add a second for Scott Kelby. I usually struggle with tutorial books, but with his its very straight forward, "do this and this will happen".
have a look at these video tutorials online too
I know you have to pay, but the Luminous Landscape video tutorials are brilliant.
You download them and can therefore watch them over and over again "offline" so to speak, which I find better than those that are online and " streamed"
If you do decide to buy the LL videos, just let us know and I will suggest which one or two to to download first to help with the specific question you asked.
Scott Kelby seems like a nice guy....
His books are very readable, So like others I would suggest a look his way, Paperback version for LR4 is now on offer at Amazon for £16 quid plus post, A bargain in todays world.
