5.0 out of 5 stars Very useful not only for beginners! 24 May 2006
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
While most of the near-150 pages are filled with screenshots accompanied by concise explanations set in bigger-than-usual type, Castro's coverage of iPhoto still comprises far more detail and facts than I had expected given the common "introductory"-type positioning of this title.

Apparently, Castro does a lot of topic research and testing before she writes about something. And on top of that, she manages to express her knowledge and experience crystal clear with a minimum of wording -- kudos!

While the title focusses on only two of maybe half a dozen of iPhoto's core functions, Castro certainly covers 80 percent if not more of what a user of this software can know about it. And she does so mostly just as comprehensive as other and more voluminous books on iPhoto, and in some areas she even goes way beyond and deeper. Only the advanced image editing with exposure, saturation etc settings comes off a bit short, but this isn't part of the advertised topics. Consquently, I am deciding to award all 5 Stars.

Excellant book for beginners. Takes you through the process step by step with exercises. A bonus: the book is illustrated with nice photos of some general interest.
