OK, but I like Zukowski's better


I glanced at this book and John Zukowski's _Definitive Guide_, and decided at the time that they were more or less the same, and that a serious Java Swing programmer should own at least one, but not both. After having bought both books (my Zukowski was in the World Trade Center), I've decided that I was very wrong in my assessment. This book is not bad, but Zukowski's goes into much more detail and provides better sample code, especially in the section on JTables.

Finally!


I've earned a living retouching photos for years and I continually seek out new material that will stretch my abilities. Most books are a rehash of the same old stuff for people like me. I discovered Photoshop for Right Brainers mentioned in one of Al Ward's tutorials and decided to take a look at it. FINALLY!!! A new source of inspiration! This book would probably be over the head of beginners but for those who have at least a working knowledge of Photoshop CS and how it applies to photos, this book ROCKS!!

Great Book - Right to the Point


This book has step-by-step instructions. Whiten Yellow teeth. Fix a picture where you wish you had used fill-flash. Decrease wrinkles and bags under eyes. Color Correct photos. Repair blemishes. This book shows you how to do all the things you want to do in Photoshop CS, but don't have the time or patience to learn how to do using the Adobe website's online methods or other books that tell you too much information. I use it as a quick reference - I have a problem, I open to the proper chapter, and BAM! Problem solved. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! If you could only own a single photohop CS book, this is it!
