The book is generally good. Unfortunately the author tends to be on the loquacious side. He does not fully explain the different parts of the system but expects you to know how everything works intuitively, which might not be the case. He is very into touch screen and not so much into mouse or keyboard. He does use internet videos in his book to further explain some facets of the new program which would be helpful if they were a little more detailed and zoomed in to show the features he is discussing.
He goes into aspects of the program that one would never use, not interested in and not care to know about a great deal. Time better spent explaining the functions of the program in better detail.
It is a long book with a lot of "read" that makes you go back over it again and again. It was helpful, it was purchased over the internet so I did not have the advantage to look through the book prior to purchase otherwise I might have chosen another. But still worth it.
