    Recommend but not strongly

    The book is somewhat dated although the basics are present. The authors in other volumes have referenced additional software. The focus is on color which is fine though much more should have been said about monochrome. Some of the directions are not clear and require lots of working through items that are not obvious, such is the discussion of formats for a variety of papers. I find it an addition to my collection but it really needs to be brought up to date for anyone not familiar with printing with Epson printers and the more readily useable software such as Silver Efex Pro.

    Lacking, Lacking, Lacking

    The first three chapters lack the depth to give them any real worth. They give less information than I could get from any quick web overview. The rest are good topics but not handled well enough to be helpful. The photos used to illustrate their point are not detailed enough and in some cases don't even make sense - they are discussing pixels per inch and the screen shot is set to centimeters. That sort of tells you what the book is like. You can't really follow their steps since something is almost always missing. Save your money this one is not worth it.
