Best Photoshop Book I own
I've been using PHotoshop since 1992, and I certainly didn't find this book too basic. Most photoshop books I own all cover the tools, but never venture to give specific settings for certain tasks. Even though the book covers a lot of basic concepts, I still learned tons of shortcuts and tricks that I didn't know about. I love this book and have read it cover to cover, which I rarely do with a reference book!

Just What I Wanted.... and Got
When I first opened the book, I quickly thumbed through the pages and found all sorts of neat information. I tried all of it. Then I was so impressed, I read it from cover to cover. I expected elemtary chapters, such as 'file management' to be old hat, but was I wrong. Every page had me saying "Wow, I didn't know you could do that", of "so that's how you do that". I teach photography at the University of Tennessee and recommend this book to every student. Thanks, Scott.

An easy-to-use Photoshop reference document
This is a great book for the serious amateur or dark room professional who wants to improve their photos without having to become a Photoshop Guru. This practical guide covers most of the corrections a photographer will need in an easy to understand, how-to style. If you are an art major or a graphic designer you may want a more in-depth book. For me, however, this is a perfect guide to simple yet effective corrections. One suggestion for future editions would be to give more explanations about the "technical why" some of these techniques work. My biggest criticism is that the author's "down-home humor" gets tiring after about 25 pages.
