I find this manual difficult to navigate, and the language is occasionally obtuse. Like most people, I use these books to learn how to complete a specific job. I don't read the book cover to cover. Does anybody? I haven't been able to complete a single project I've attempted, because reference is invariably made to some tool or process with which I am unfamiliar, and there are no links to track the required information down. Normally, the index would help with this problem, but the index is this manual is woefully lacking. All in all, the book is a dud. I'll be looking for something else.
In fairness, it's tough to buy a manual online because you don't have the opportunity to scan it first. I love buying books online, but I think a manual is one book better bought in a bookstore.

I love this book. I am going through it cover to cover and although it was frustrating to start with using the Organizer and Saving your work (I wanted to jump right in and DO something), in the end the author knew better then i did and you have to know what you are going to do with your pictures after you adjust with them. While taking Kim Klassen's free on line Skinny-Mini Elements class, I constantly referred back to this manual to figure out what I was doing and why. I felt it referenced other commands in the book very well. Although there are plenty of examples in the book, I could have used more pictures.
