Like most computer program books this text was obviously proofread by nodding Photoshop experts rather than tested on someone who actually had to learn the subject from the beginning.
Just about every example offered on any topic involves marginally explained or totally omitted steps. Anyone trying to learn Photoshop from square one will soon become annoyed by having to figure out these missing steps. For example, on page 277 the author tries to explain how to merge the two images of a baseball and a player in seven steps. To these, I wrote into the margin of the page three more crucial steps, without which the final results would be impossible to achieve.
She seems to give a higher priority to unnecessary explanations of the deep Zen theory behind the program, so by page 250 the reader comes to realize that very little hands-on practical knowledge has been gained. This becomes more obvious if you go to the YouTube tutorials as you read the book. You will quickly discover that you are learning three times as much online, for the same amount of time spent with this book.
Most frustrating is the fact that she will not repeat anything already stated. So, if she mentions something on page 30 which you are required to know for the lesson on page 300, you'd better have it tattooed to your wrist because she's not saying it again, and with a typically poor index, you'll be searching hard to find it back on page 30. Again, on the page 277 example, there was a small stumbling point involving critical information explained on page 166. Initially unable to find this info 111 pages back, I spent half an hour figuring it out for myself.
The writing also lacks structure and continuity, apparent for the fact that all too often the author will start out explaining something only to tell the reader that further relevant material will be explained in chapters ahead.
Most people would think that an 850 page book would just about cover everything in terms of the techniques of manipulating a program of this type. Most disappointing is the fact that all clues of how to control the program end at about page 285, at which point the author dedicates the next 550 pages to endlessly long-winded explanations of enhancing photographs of people, including tummy tucks, teeth whitening, butt reduction, plus an endless parade of the nonsense of making normal looking people look very weird and bizarre. In other words, she goes completely off the edge into the art and minutia of photo faking.
ALL OF THE ABOVE BEING SAID, every critical review of this type demands a solution in terms of an alternative, and here it is.
With Adobe Photoshop CS6 Digital Classroom by Jennifer Smith, I am now learning this program at twice the speed. In the first 100 pages of this far superior text, I have learned about three times as much as in the first 300 pages of Missing Manual, with very well explained procedures and few stumbling points. And unlike Missing Manual, which makes a joke of the "missing CD," Digital Classroom comes with a CD that is full of extra tips and demos to supplement the text. What a difference!
UPDATE: Want an even better book! I just finished Top 100 Simplified Tips and Tricks by Lynette Kent. This book literally holds you by the hand with step by step photos showing you where each little control icon is located on the workspace. What's more, it actually gives 117 of the most important tasks, in two page presentations. If you can't learn Photoshop from this book, definitely give up trying.
Side note: I like the that the cover of this book is NOT a photograph. It seems that many instructional photography books function as a showcase for someone else's photography, vision, or fantasies about shooting sexy female models. I actually like the generic quality of this cover.
