As a tips and tricks book, The Photoshop CS2 Killer tips for Scott Kelby and Felix Nelson is not a tutorial book, it helps you explore the hidden tricks in Photoshop CS2 to help you accomplishing tasks faster and easily.
The book starts with some useful tips and trick for Adobe Bridge that come with Adobe Photoshop. The Adobe Bridge tips includes tips that help you work faster such as batch processing your files, renaming, rating to easily reach your search results.
The next chapters of the book describe Photoshop tips and tricks with a friendly light language that suite the nature of the topics discussed in the book.
Each chapter concerns with a group of tips and tricks. For example, chapter 6 (Speedy Gonzalez) concerns with the layers tips and trick, and chapter 7 (Burn Rubber) shows some cool text tips.
I see this book turns the life of the Photoshop users to a fun; they can now achieve with single mouse click what they used to do with a lot of steps and time. I can not recommend this book for beginner as they may find it hard to deal with shortcuts of things they still need to learn about, but I find it a very good book for intermediate and professional Photoshop users.
