    Poser thoughts

    This is a program that I have really been wanting to learn. Hiwever for the price of this book. The binding is extremely poor as it comes apart with opening the book. The process of explination is extremely poor. I have read this book several times and still have not gotten a good quality poser item yet. I am not sure I should have spent the money on the software or book. Photoshop is a way easier product to use this book and the software should be more user friendly.
