Lightroom's a popular piece of software so it stands to reason there a few books on the market that feature Lightroom as their focus of topic. Most software books have a standard layout which uses screengrabs, instructions and a similar method for working through topics, however this title by Stan Sholik stands out from the crowd.
Why does it do this? Well there are 365 questions (feel free to take a look at one each day of the year if you wish!) that are each answered on a separate page so rather than having an overview of how to use the software with a few tips thrown in, this title looks at specific questions you made need answering.
The questions are set in blue speech bubbles and the answers are found underneath. They all have screengrabs or before / after images to further illustrate the points made and each answer is easy to read thanks to the design.
Answers are grouped to make it easier to find relevant answers to your questions, however I did miss not having an index which I could use to search for a specific keyword. Instead I had to spend time looking through the questions in the contents to find what I was looking for.
That small niggle aside, it's a useful book that does answer quite a few commonly asked questions about Lightroom.
