    Default Speaking of Scott Kelby!

    I looked on Amazon tonight to try to find a book from him. Whoa!! He has written so many and they all look like they would be great! So here is what Im wondering...
    if you have a book of his: which one? and why do you like/dislike it?
    and
    How do you choose which book of his is right for you?

    I am NOT a reader by any means, but I think I could get into these books.
    Thanks for helping me sort thru this! I get overwhelmed by too many choices

    Generally I like to actually use a book like this to see if its for me.

    Are you looking for a photoshop book? I just ordered this one

    Sounds like its good for me b/c the first 1/3 is camera raw which I use all the time before getting into cs4. But after reading some reviews it sounds like some people do their raw editing in lightroom so this book has a lot of useless info

    I have the following books and really like them all! I like his sense of humor and it makes reading them more enjoyable. My favorite is definitly the elements one b/c it has really helped me and is a great reference. I had purchased 2 other elements books before stumbling upon this one and actually sold the others and just kept this one! The digitial photog books 1 & 2 are great as well, but there are chapters I haven't had much interest in, and others I've read multiple times!

    Thanks girls!! I never thought of the library before! I live in a VERY small town (pop 603) so I may have to go and check some other public librarys around here!
    Jess-that is good to know about the elements book. I was leaning towards a book for CS2 or CS3. I currently use CS2, but have the other, just too chicken to try it. I hate failure!!

    I have this one and this is exactly how I feel! I wish it showed how to do raw in Lightroom But I definitely am still learning a lot from it.

    I have the Digital Photography book (I should read it again now that I know more). And I have his Elements 7 book, which is awesome! If I had CS4, I'd get that book ... but I don't.
