A round up of all the software available for all sorts of applications. The idea behind this book is a time-saving look at many kinds of applications from editing programs to photo recovery. You can simply flick to the chapter that you're considering and you will be greeted with a selection of available software with a description of what the software does, along with a view of the author, and at the end of the chapter a round up of that category. Much of this could be gained by accessing the software developers' web sites, but finding them is often difficult, so this book takes all the strain out. It also explains about software that you may not have realised existed.
It was interesting to see on one product that the author had clearly visited ePHOTOzine in his research. It appear well researched and informative. Not a book I'd buy because I know how to find what I need on the web and the summaries were not strong enough verdicts to make me need this book for reassurance. But for those who're not comfortable with search engines and would like to know what's out there this book does the job well. It would be good to see the screen grabs in colour...totally mono throughout gives it a dated feel.
