Don't make the mistake of thinking that this is 'just another Photoshop Book' because you couldn't be further from the truth. Over the last couple of years my library of 'how to' books for photoshop has grown considerably but if i had to get rid of some (heaven forbid) and couldn't only keep a few then this new book by Matt Kloskowski would be one to keep without question!. It's totally jam packed full of useful tips and techniques for getting the most out of this wonderful program that will not only as it says 'Speed' up your workflow but will simplify some of the more 'misunderstood' tools and concepts. Written in an clear and fun, 'almost conversation' style this really is a top class book, but don't take my word for it..buy it and you'll be amazed at how much information is held within the pages.

As a photo retoucher who still works with CS2, I found the books on CS2 can be purchase very cheap on Amazon, due to that Adobe Photoshop is now on CC, and you will find the books on Photoshop CC a lot more,so I have found I can still learn and use most of the tools in photoshop CS2 just as well without upgrade to CC.
