The speed of change in this field must be a headache for writers and publishers. Everything is out of date all the time. This is a very nice book on the whole, informative and well produced. I like this format too as it stays open more easily. The coverage seems very thorough and the images are good, but it was published in 2007 so many things are not wholly relevant. For example there is a lot of material referring to Adobe Photoshop, but the version in the book is CS2. Current version is CS5.5. Mention is made of Lightroom and Aperture and these have moved on too. Lightroom 4 is out now. None of this renders the book useless, but it is sorely in need of a revision.
Service and price from the 3rd party sellers was very good.
