    If you are serious about your photography, you will love this book. You don't have to be a professional to want to get the most out of your photos. Though it will take a while to get through this book, it pays off in a big way. Elements 6 is not learned by Osmosis. An instruction manual is a MUST. This is a great manual. Later, you will thank youself for purchasing this book. It explains many things is a very complete way, assuming you know nothing about the program.

    a good book for those of us that need help from time to time

    i like this particular book because you don't have to start at the beginning, you can pick out a chapter that you need help with, but of course you can also start from the beginning to learn photoshop, i also have another 'missing manual' book, although different author. i liked the arrangement of the book.
