Yes, it is an excellent book. I recommend it highly for anyone thats a photography and using PS CS2. One thing though, there is a newer edition that is about 1/3 bigger than the one you have there. Barnes and Noble has both editions on the shelf... and when Ross bought his, he said the older version was more expensive than the newer version. The cover is a different color on the newer one.

Mike the one he posted up was the newer version... at least by the copyrights on the two versions in the store... is there even a newer one?

My mistake... that is the newer one of the two. Mine has a green race car, a pretty girl, and a flower on the front cover, and the blue part is more aqua colored. Other than that the cover looks the same. Mine is the older one - First Edition.

The book is actually good for PS7 and PS CS1 as well. Most of what is in there would work with any of them, and if I recall, it tells you when its a CS2 function.

Good find, and an NAPP membership is $99/year, so you could join and take the course for $129.
