If you're brand new to the Dummies Books or are somewhat slow you will love this ultimate guide to the Dummies Books.

Book Description
What? A Dummies book to help people learn how to use the Dummies books? Well, the ideas that is not as dumb, or at least frivolous, as you might think. The Dummies books have a unique voice and icon driven style that's built-up a loyal following over the years. Using these books has always been self-explanatory, at least that's what the creators thought. Over the years they received a constant stream of complaints and requests for help on how to decipher the Dummies style. Heeding the call the Dummies people asked veteran Dummies book's writer Julia Adair King to tackle the redundant but apparently necessary Dummies for Dummies Book. "Having written over 20 of the Dummies books I was quite intimate with the Dummies style and worldview ... at least that's why I thought. Writing the Definitive Guide to Using the Dummies Book's required an almost reversed engineering, or say deconstruction, to figure out exactly what it was in the Dummies Books that was making it difficult for some people to understand how to use them. After all, the Dummies Books are remedial by nature and creating a training text on something that already assumes you know nothing was a real challenge. Ultimately we ended up with a book that has explanations for the explanations and another character who looks very similar to the Dummies guide character who kind of hovers above him and throws in additional explanations and comments about what the dummies guide character is already explaining...it's actually quite surreal, almost parody." read more

3 out of 5 stars A high school book ( un libro para jóvenes de secundaria), March 28, 1998
Reviewer: lzpeg@hotmail.com from Dominican Republic

Si usted es un profesional de las artes gráficas, ilustrador o arquitecto que desea utilizar Photoshop para sus trabajos, este libro dará tantas vueltas que lo cansará antes de aprender lo básico. Si le da valor a su tiempo y desea aprender le recomiendo Photoshop 4 for Macintosh: Visual Quickstart Guide de Elaine Weinmann and Peter Lourekas.

5 out of 5 stars A great resource, October 23, 1997
Reviewer: Peter Payne (see more about me) from Isesaki, Japan

I have to say, the For Dummies books are excellent, and have helped me crack most of the features of Photoshop. I can't recommend this book highly enough.
