Yes! A good buy as far as I am concerned. It's easy to follow, even if your like me and not too technically minded. Within 2 hours of receiving the book, I could do logo's that looked like some techy wizard had produced. And it's easy to use as a reference too.

I am sure the book was a good book at the time of its printing , but as new version emerge the book becomes somewhat useless.
Web Graphics Circa 1990s

Everything in this short Web graphics based book for GIMP showcases graphics that would have been used back in the 20th century. I get the feeling GIMP is a more powerful photo editing and manipulating program than it's Adobe rival Photoshop, especially a version from the 90s. This book was no help to me at all as a Web professional. It's a shame there isn't a lot of resources out there in book form for GIMP, as I do prefer reading from left to right (ie. reading a book), rather than up in a vertical direction (reading a screen). Look for the Official Handbook, and look for more books to be released in the future.
