Although I am not a beginner in Photoshop, I am close to it. I have had this book for about a week and have gotten some good use from it. The instructions on the various techniques are very good. It also has some techniques that I have not seen in the few similar books I have looked at in book stores. I don't know if this is the best of its kind on the market, but it has served my purposes well. I am glad I purchased it.
