    Basic Pocket Reference Book

    This is a basic pocket reference book that reminds users of which buttons, commands and scripting does what. There is no real instruction and it is good for someone who uses GIMP often, but not for someone who is looking for an instruction manual.

    The listed price is not worth it. I'd continue looking for a used book at a much more reasonable price. I own this book myself and recommend it as a reference but it will be (if not already) out of date with a newer release of the GIMP program.
