It is definately for the beginner though, once you start getting heavy into photo editing you will need to purchase something else.

However, I do agree with him about the black and white issue. Computers and computers graphics are all about color and a black and white book for a piece of software like this is just down right silly! I would love to see another book with the writers style (and sense of humor) but IN COLOR, now that my feet are wet in a manner of speaking. When might we be seeing one?
What would have made this book even better would have been full color. When Paint Shop Pro has a new version I sure hope Sonja does a new book. It will be one book I will surely purchase.
The fact that it is a textbook format actually works for the total beginner. What do I mean by beginner: people like me who have zero background in creating or editing digital media like photos or bitmaps. And have zero background with the industry standard products like Adobe.
So the books which are targeted for users who are transitioning to Paint Shop and know the standard Adobe methods for doing x or y just confuses me.
If you know what layers are and how they are used, then this book is not for you.
The pro's of this book are that it will take you lesson by lesson and show you how to use the product, and teach you techniques. You will learn both the why and how.
Also all of the files needed for the lessons are online at the publishers website.
This is not a reference. And yes it is not in color.. ( not sure why ).
