Before I got this book, I was sitting in front of the computer for hours (!!@#%?!) trying to figure out why I couldn't achieve a desired effect. This book is very easy to read and thorough. Really detailed explanations on executing strokes. Wonderful short cuts! I'm rating this book a four, only because I wished a few demo projects were included on a CD.
