I agree with most of the previous reviews, this is a must for all serious photo editors. I received the book as a Christmas present and was anxious to make sure that my copy was printed correctly after reading earlier reviews of hit and miss printing. Really really disapointed to find that just like others before my copy has many pages where the printing is either feint or completely misssing, how can it be that since Amazon has been aware of this problem from Aug. 2010 they are still sending out poor quality copies. Now i have to give my book back to my son so he can return it for a refund and reorder and hope that the replacement is ok
Have now received my replacement copy and my request that it was checked for errors before sending was obviously ignored ,the new copy is just as bad although the miss-printing is on different pages. So what do i do ?, give up on Amazon and buy from a regular book store knowing there is likely to be a hike in the price or try again . I'm going to give it 1 more try and hope for the best, wish me luck !!!
ps amazon said they would update me re my first review in 1-2 days, still waiting !!!
