Whenever I need a software guide, I serach the Amazon website to see if there is a 'Visual Quickstart Guide' for the product. If I find one, which I always seem to do, I look no further. These guides are full of useful 'tips and tricks' and serve as a self-teach for new users and a very handy reference for those with more experience.
In my view, these guides set the standard that others need to follow, and the Photoshop CS4 guide is no exception.

I have one of these books for each new application that I buy.
They're quick and easy to pick up, find an answer, put down and get on with it.
I would highly recommend this and all other Visual QuickStart guides for beginners and intermediate users who want to use the programs without spending hours with a manual.
