I have just bought Lightroom 3 and was looking for some advice as to the best book for learning how to use it.

I don't have a book to recommend.....
But this site and its content is quite useful.....
You could also check out the content for LR2, As much of that is quite relevant in LR3 ( though not all )
Quote: the best book for learning how to use it.
I can't recommend one but if you find one, expect it to be pretty thick. As in, like "War and Peace"!
Although it's pretty effective, Lightroom's not exactly user friendly.
On a serious note, if you've got Lightroom 3, you might as well download the 3.2 update.
Latest update is now 3.4
Best book I have found (mainly because it is by a British author) is the one by Martin Evening. Just search Amazon for Lightroom Evening and you'll find it.

I'll go and find it.
This book by Martin Evening is the one I have found useful .. plenty of positive reviews. As Jester has suggested it is a hefty tome and will take some getting through.
Just on Jester's other point on updates - I have just downloaded version 3.4
Must learn to type faster

Same here . . .
. . . while you were typing!
Likewise- i've the Martin Evening book - seemed the best.
Martin's book covers all aspects of photography...this one is just on Lightroom. We reviewed Lightroom 2 version, but no doubt a 3 is either out or coming soon. This one is such a bargain right now and most of the guide is relevant to 3.
I have Scott Kelby's book on Lightroom 3 and think that it is pretty good. Mind you, I haven't compared it with any others.

I have this book too. The writing style takes a bit of getting used to (very folksy-American) but the content is good.
There are some good App's on iTunes if you have a iPad/iPod/iPhone. Cheap and very informative with good video tutorials.
Thanks everyone. I have ordered the Martin Evening book from Amazon. If it's not as good as you all say it is I'm going to come and live next door to one of you and take photographs....loudly!!
