Another Great Book!


Bruce and Barbara have written another fantastic book. Not only do they give you solid recommendations on components, but they clearly explain their reasoning and why they feel it is the best choice. They are not scared to discuss any potential downfalls of current technologies and they give you a preview of what to expect in the future. Additionally, their website provides constant updates on new product releases which still make this book a valuable reference for years to come.

Give that man a cigar


Scott Kelby has written the hands down best book for digital photograph retouching on the market. After working with photoshop for five years or so with a knowledge of it patched together from many different courses and books, I discovered Kelbys book. At last a book that teaches the things I want to learn, and only the things I want to learn. This is a strictly for digital photographers, graphic designers keep clicking this is not for you. But for photographers, buy this, download the images from his web site and then do the hundred or so lessons using the same photos he uses in the book, all supplied by big name photographers. When you are finished you will editing like a pro, nothing has made photoshop nearly as useful for me as has this excellent book.

fluffy


Not enough in-depth material to appeal to advanced programmers, and lots of padding. Unclear depiction of concepts for beginners. Misleading about thread scheduling and priorities.
