this is the one book I recomend to all my photographer friends who are already into the Adobe Photoshop program . Many books that come down the turnpike are writen for amatures and are consiquently a waste of time and money to those of us who already have a working knowledge of Photoshop . This book details not only the how but for some of us who teach it also tells the why behind the advice . I liked the layout and the easy to navigate chapters. It is a book that warrents a complete readthrough, yet if you are having a challenge in a single catagory ,such as selection you can go directly to that chapter and have your information available and find it meaningful without having to start at the beginning fearful of missing relavent information .

I bought this book after browsing through the book shelves, opening and reading contents. Finally, I found the topic that was or missed or underexplaind in other Photoshop books: 'color management'. Now I know what means what and how to print pictures the same quality and color as they are on my monitor screen. Although book has all Photoshop features explained, this one was good enough for me to invest money wisely. ( do not have to search the Internet and other bookstore shelf for a glimpse of color management)
