My only nit picky complaint is with the publisher: they used very poor quality paper on this. Why they did that, I can't imagine
as it is the best I've read on enhancing one's CAD programs. And it is up to speed with the latest CS5.
Unlike the other comments, I would not say this book is only for beginners only. Although I wish there was more advance tutorials and maybe more explanation...or help in using LISP program for exporting png layering files.
Aside from that major problem, I recognise and will give full credit to the author for the very detailed steps he has set out. I knew very little about Photoshop but after just a few days and a few chapters, a little world has been opened up to me. No regrets buying this book at all.
