Grokking the GIMPby Carey Bunks
"Grokking the GIMP" is for the serious user of the GNU Image Manipulation Program, a premiere digital image editing and painting program. It covers the GIMP in depth, and complex tasks are intuitively presented and explained using an interactive approach. In addition to emphasizing the theory and core concepts of image manipulation, "Grokking the GIMP" beautifully illustrates the practical aspects of working with digital images. This fully 4-color book presents nine major projects and a collection of many smaller ones that illustrate the core and advanced uses of this powerful open-source application. Numbered steps and an abundance of color images walk the reader through real-world examples of color correction, image enhancement, collage, photo montage, rendering, and Web-graphics creation.

With my short patience, I couldn't penetrate the gimp's bizarre model of selections, masks, layers, and channels. After reading your book, I feel much more comfortable. It still seems strange and mysterious, but I was able to construct a multi-layer image without too much head scratching.
