    I saw it at Coles, $57 CAD. I skimmed through it and it looks like a good source for Adobe techniques.

    Anyone else use/read it?

    Personally I enjoy all Kelby's books, however, I was a little dissapointed with the CS3 book as it just mainly re-iterated alot of the stuff he did in the photoshop elements book. Not much new stuff there.

    You can probably learn as much if not more from researching on the internet than you can from a book such as this.

    I agree with Aaron here.... more info on the internet...

    But for someone who is stepping into photoshop for the first time (and doing digital photography), Kelby really does all the pertinent and best information needed for photographers - its consise, well written, lots of screen shots to see what is happening....

    I say its an excellent all around resource for someone stepping into it for the first time, but doesn't want to be lead astray with the insane amount of options and things available on the net. I read the CS2 book a few years back, and it was a great help at that time in my photo learning.

    Just my 2 cents!
