After using the tiniest of Photoshop's iceberg tip to get the most basic of tasks done, along comes a book which explains everything that this amazing software is capable of in an easy-to-understand text, supported by appropriate colour images on almost every page. I think the author has got the format exactly right, as each of the "9 Books in 1" describe a very thorough walkthrough of the processes required to come out with great digital images. Indeed, the layout of the book encourages you to read on and experiment with techniques you only dreamed of!

It is my image bible and takes its place next to my monitor at all times.

If this is your first introduction to Photoshop, read the first review offered. The book will get you started. However, I got the impression that it has been put together in a rush to meet a deadline and from previous editions. In such a huge book it tends to focus upon publication work rather than the demands of a photographer. In fact I don't get the impression that the author is a photographer. Rather it is someone who sets up others' work for presentation and probably does this very well. In short, there are better books out there for a start in CS5 (cf Martin Evening's book)- oh and check out Planet Photoshop on the web for excellent tutorials.

I am quite good at learning from a manual and so found this book easy to use. I had tried online videos, but it was a bit hit and miss to find the answer to the exact problem.

The publication is very comprehensive. Unfortunately by its nature Photoshop is a very complex program and therefore it follows that a manual will be extensive as well. I have only had it for a few weeks and have not used it sufficiently to gauge an opinion on its merit, but from general appearance it looks like an excellent manual for the program.

This guide really is so easy to follow and navigate. Having it on my kindle rather than having to carry around a heavy book is also a bonus.

Would recommend this kindle version to everyone!

This is by far the best book of its kind I have ever read! I didn't quite know what to expect from the Dummies range but was very impressed, this book is very easy to follow and understand and the cross referencing is excellent. I have read and re-read it so many times it is almost worn it out! There are countless photographs and examples it is almost impossible to go wrong. It contains all the information you could possibly want or need to be able to use CS5 to a very high standard.

I find this book clear, well set out and easy to use. Until now I've been using an earlier edition for CS4 so it may not be surprising that I find this one much better!
