5.0 out of 5 stars Adobe Photoshop CS2 for Photographers, 3 Jun 2005
My personal Photoshop library numbers many dozens of titles from most of the well & not so well known Photoshop Authors.Amongst them are the last three titles from Martin Evening in the Photoshop for Photographers series. Photoshop in all it's guises is in my humble opinion one of the top, if not the top application of all time.However it is a vast and initially daunting programme with many in depth areas.Adobe work hard in making Photoshop accessible and enjoyable to use, but, and this is a "big" but,the programme demands that an individual must make a very real commitment to learning how to use Photoshop if they wish to progress and achieve professional results.
If you are a photographer of any standared from beginer to Agency or International Press Professional then this Martin Evening title should be top of your to buy list.As I mention earlier I have many Photoshop books and the vast majority are very good but trust me this title is a "cut" above the rest.It is clear,concise extremely well presented and above all a real pleasure to read.If you are in any way serious about getting the maximumn benefit as a photographer from the latest incarnation of Photoshop CS2 buy it!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Good Starting Foundation, 5 Dec 2002
A well presented title,it has excellent Photographs and the diagrams are clear and easy to understand. If you have just started Ten Pin bowling there is a multitude of information to digest, obviously how in depth you wish to go is relevant to your own personal expectations and how much you wish to practice.
I have read a fair number of titles on Ten pin bowling and this particular book covers a wide range of the skills needed to raise your game from that of the "Childrens Party" participant to that of a person with a good basic overall knowledge of the sport.
There are different sections in the book that deal with Pre-shot routines,different hand releases,starting position and the targeting of spares. Along with chapters on Bowling equipment and a glossary of the various terms and language of Ten Pin Bowling.
Overall a well presented and knowledgeable title for those Just begining in the sport who wish to improve their game.
