I am not new to Lightroom since I had been using Lightroom 3 for about a year. When I decided to upgrade to Lightroom 4 I thought I might also get a book since I was not sure that I was getting as much out of Lightroom as I might have been able to given that there was some functionality I did not know much about. When I looked through the Kindle Lightroom 4 listings I found this book. It attracted me initially because it was far less expensive than many of the others and it was free to "borrow" for Prime members. Since I was a Prime member I downloaded it feeling that the worst that could happen would be the loss of some of my time.

This book, as it turns out, is a gem. It is well written, covers all of the Lightroom 4 functionality, treats readers as though they were new to Lightroom and has extremely well written descriptions of what to do and enough photos of Lightroom panels so that it is easy to understand what is being done. Although I had been using Lightroom 3 for some time I learned an enormous amount from this book. The types of things I learned were not so much new functionality (although there was some of that as well) as easier ways to do what I had been doing and full descriptions of what was really going on. After going through some of the chapters I could not believe how much time I had wasted in Lightroom before.

Some examples - I did not know that there was an easy way to reset the Lightroom Develop adjustment sliders. I did not know there was an easy way to reset complete sets of sliders. I did not know that there was a way to automatically close one adjustment set when another was opened so that it was not necessary to scroll up and down to open sets. I did not know there was such an easy way to remove all clipping from images.

I'm conflicted about this book, because it is very well done and VERY complete. But the formatting is oddly not very good for the Kindle.

This is quite a different approach from Kelby's exuberant and personal guides. Duncan isn't that kind of writer, and there's no flash or pizazz at all. BUT it's complete with guides to menus and submenus, and all the ways to access them. I think it's a useful book maybe to use along with Kelby's. But there isn't any sizzle here---just information, along with a good number of good illustrations and screen shots.

I've got several books on the Kindle, so I'm familiar with formatting, and these days it really isn't that hard. So, I'm puzzled at the awful formatting job for this otherwise good book. Lines unaccountably break in the middle for no apparent reason, though you can sometimes remedy this by holding the Kindle on the side. I've tried changing font and type size, and the maddening problems still exists. Doesn't make it impossible to read, but makes it harder when lines abruptly end--for no reason--after 3 or 4 words. Puzzling to me why this should have not been corrected.

And, also very oddly, you won't find the Table of Contents as a link in the normal place, which, if true, would render the book useless. However, there IS a Table of Contents, it just didn't make the 'contents' icon (which, again, is an awful oversight).

HINT: You'll find the Table of Contents a few pages into the 'Beginning' of the book, so at least there is one, it's just not where you'd expect to find it.

Despite all that, this IS a well-thought-out and well-presented book. Lightroom 4 is complicated and not necessarily intuitive for folks coming from Photoshop or Elements. If you can put up with a bit of formatting hassle, it's a good book.

This book is written in a logical, step-by-step progression and is easy to follow. The illustrations are perfect and every detail is covered. This is the perfect book to teach the basics and then keep beside the computer for reference when there are questions later. It is obvious that the author spent many hours paying attention to detail and that there is nothing that isn't covered in this book.

This book, to me, DOES make learning Lightroom 4 easier than many alternative books I've read. Obviously, some material had to be cut, omitting material in the more comprehensive books, but I don't think that for now it will handicap my learning more about this program.

My big complaint is in the execution of the conversion from a printed edition to the e-version. The formatting is, to be honest, horrible and distracting. Sentences end in the middle of a line, with plenty of space to have included another word or two, then pick up below. Figures get placed far away from where they're discussed. Bulleted comments that should start at the left of the page, with a new line, appear haphazardly. Overall, the formatting leaves LOTS to be desired, and distracts (me, at least) from a nice "flow" of information. This is one instance in which I wish I'd sprung for the usual printed version.
