    I've invested in a lot of books like this over the years, but this one is unique in that it actually taught me some great new tips & tricks that'll actually USE! The exercises are great and the "notes" and diagrams make everything easy to follow. I tend to be a "visual learner", so I also found the DVD that comes with the book, to be really helpful. It shows you how everything is done, step by step~ it's almost like having a tutor right in the room with you. The chapter on Resolution was excellent, and really helped me to finally get a better understand of it! Great book, very well written. I will be keeping this one by my computer at ALL times!
