4A good introduction into Photoshop CC
By J.M. Everhard
This book is a good introduction on Photoshop CC. For experienced users it gives a fine introduction to the new tools and how to use them. The beginners can learn the interface and how to use the most important tools. I think it is a pity the Adobe team did not write about how to interpret a histogram, how to create a workflow and how te determine the differences between different tools that can do the same job, for example Shadow - Highlight and Levels. Nevertheless it is a good book to understand and learn Photoshop.

1VERY Disappointing!
By Bruce A. Kantor
I would not recommend this book to anyone!!! I am highly technical, versed in both software and graphical\photographic concepts and found this book very hard to follow. My major complaint is that in most situations, this book told you what to do, but gave no explanation as to why. For example, when discussing a dialog box with 7 sliders in one of the lessons, it tells the reader exactly what settings to place each slider, but never mentioned what each slider was, why one would use it, the concept around it, etc. This kind of scenario is the rule, not the exception with this book. I found my self constantly playing with sliders, looking them up online and generally getting very frustrated. Because of this, the lessons took significantly longer than their estimates and,on several occasions, I needed to go back and repeat the lesson. I did not get much out of this book nor after reading it do I feel like I can do the things in Photoshop that I wanted to be able to do.

5Love Adobe Classroom in a Books!
By LYNZ
I really have loved my experience with Classroom in a Book from Adobe, and will recommend these for any of their products especially for beginners. They do such a great job of walking you through all the basics, not leaving out any steps which is essential for a beginner. The last thing you want is for a book or tutorial to skip small steps, assuming you should already know how to do them, and these books definitely do not skip details and how-to's. I love how they arrange chapters by different types of projects so you can read just what you need/ want, or all of it! Each time a step is needed, it tells you exactly how to perform the step so that you don't have to go back through the book to remember how something was done.
