I used some airport and flight time to read about half of this book. It's an easy read. Doesn't presume any knowledge as other books do. Learned more in 8-10 hrs than I had messing around with the program for a month! Direct, concise, sequential!

Once again the Dummies series produces an authoritative guide. I have several books on Photoshop Elements, but this is the best I have found so far.
