About the Author
Barbara Brundage has been the author of Photoshop Elements: The Missing Manual since Elements 3, is an Adobe Community Expert, and has been a member of Adobe's prerelease groups for Elements 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9. She's been teaching people how to use Photoshop Elements since it first came out in 2001. Barbara started using Elements to create graphics for use in her day job as a harpist, music publisher, and arranger. Along the way, she joined the large group of people finding a renewed interest in photography thanks to digital cameras. If she can learn to use Elements, you can, too!

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.
A must have book. Well written.
PhotoSHOP Elements 10 is 600 heavily illustrated, large format pages of small type superbly printed, exhausting the capacity of the application to modify photographs. A power user will be satisfied.
However, I am not interested in modifying photographs. I use Photoshop only for painting illustrations. This tome has 100 pp explaining the tools for painting, mainly about layers, gradients, and text. That works out to >30¢ per page; instruction for drawing, painting, selecting, etc. must be sought among the other 500 pp and then adapted to painting. I suggest that ADOBE's manuals be studied before costly third party books
PhotoSHOP is the industry standard, a necessary competence for professionals; it is written for photographic technicians and professional printers rather than intuitive artists. I advise artists to start digital painting with simple programs, such as Corel PAINTER Elements 4, and then graduate to PhotoSHOP when the basic operations are understood and the finer, professional techniques are desired.
This book is thorough and fairly lucid for PhotoShoppers determined to achieve professional excellence. Who else would invest in PhotoShop?
I recommended this to a friend who has never used any type of photo editing suite. It is as if the writer is sitting down beside you and walking you through the steps and providing you with recommendations on why one way of doing an edit is better than another way of trying to achieve a similar result. When you consider that some places charge you $125 a day to sit in a classroom and learn one or two things, the price of this book is worth way more than its weight in gold.
I recommend the book & the format.
