Like the Complete Photoshop book this is a heavy 768 page reference guide, showing that A) it's potentially going to be thorough and b) Elements is actually one heluva program if it needs a book this thick to cover it. To help you wade through the book it's split into five sections each with loads of sub headings. The sections are: Part I: Photoshop Elements Orientation
Part II: Managing the Digital Darkroom Workflow
Part III: Adding Special Effects to Your Images
Part IV: Preparing Your Photos for the Web, Print and Presentation
Part V. Appendices
It's in black & white throughout but the choice of pictures is a little better than the Photoshop 7 book and the writing style is equally to the point and enjoyable. There's also a measly 8 page colour section that has even been mentioned on the cover! If you want the ins and outs of Elements this is certainly worth a look.
