Great book for early users of GIMP.   I found that using this book was much much better than figuring out GIMP by reading the buit-in documentation.  I would certainly recommend this to early users of GIMP, more specifically to peopl ewho use GIMP for phot processing.

Negatives?  Few.  I also have a printed copy of this book.  That does not show images clearly.  Some chapters are not as well written as others.  For example - I found discussion of PATH tool quite cumbersome and difficult to comprehend.  The language could be made a bit more lively and friendly.

Bu these are not big issues.  Overall it is a great helpful book, especially you are a proficient computer user.
