The body copy is a bit large and causes tennis neck when reading. Book publishers often in their contract require authors to do a minimum number of pages, so maybe they needed to fill up a couple of and also kept the screenshots large.
The positives First you notice this book is printed entirely in color, which makes you want to buy it for the beautiful appearance It is loaded with screen captures which are very visual and helpful. You get a clean layout with 2 tips on most pages. The headlines provide a strong division between tips and help navigate your attention. I have high respect for the direction of this book as it is thinking out of the box, and filling a demand users have.
Newbees will benefit enormously from this book, and advanced users will have one stop shopping for about tips. I hope advanced users and the authors of killer tips will visit www. OSX screenshots come out great as they are antialiased, but so is Windows XP, and hope they use some of those next time to support cross platform people. I want to stress the importance of the content, you would have to buy so many magazines, and search so many web pages to get all of these tips.
That is the strength of this book, and you will not regret purchasing it.
I have not seen any video material with Kelby, but his sense of humor probably have more impact there. I would like to see Kelby do some other programs besides Photoshop, and think my side would split on After Effects.
Though I knew these tips, it was good to see them explained in a way that people can understand. A book with screenshots making color management easy for everyone to control and not be scared of would be a good book. Some of the screenshots show good design knowledge. Many Photoshop books are written by technical people with little design skill, and they could never put a book out with these real world tips.
This is an excellent way to prepare for the Adobe Certified Exam also. The negatives Kelby is great in person, but the stories beginning every chapter are not that interesting.
Maybe they come off better live, but you will skip the stories as you encounter them, to get to the actual tips in the book. The tips could use a copy revision to condense them.
