I've been a KPT user for a long time, and loved the way this book showed me new ways to use it. I was also pleased to find that the author covered many other plug-ins and filters. Most of the filters from other vendors do different things from Kai's PowerTools, so it's good to have coverage of other products. Many of the examples used Alien Skin's Eye Candy, and there was a whole chapter on Extensis's line. Ulead's filters are not widely known, but they were covered here. The many pages of color really helped me visualize how the effects would look. The writing was clear and easy to understand, and the step by step instructions simple to follow. I'll look for other books by this author.
