5.0 out of 5 stars THIS BOOK IS A GEM, May 25, 2015
An intriguing read, especially well written. This is a story that has depth and engagement. Danuta's skill at setting the stage, carrying along and revealing the gist is superb. Her writing style is honed and her use of alliteration sprinkled in at poignant moments, is subtle but powerful. Danuta's story, having taken nearly a quarter century to complete, is so well constructed, with a true 'edge of the seat' characteristic.

Her life is intertwined, but her description of her life untangles the mysteries. She reveals so much, yet is completely respectful in the telling. Along with the short, succinct but connected chapters, this is a book you won't be able put down.

1.0 out of 5 stars Product doesn't fit, February 5, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This product doesn't fit the iPhone 5c as it's advertised to do. Both halves of the case broke when I tried to get my phone into each half. Still waiting to see if they'll replace or refund...

5.0 out of 5 stars A 'Must Have' book for Digital Photographers, July 27, 2010
Mark's newest book, 'Adobe Photoshop CS5 Restoration and Retouching for Digital Photographers Only is a must have addition to any photographer's library. The book is laid out in a workable, easy to navigate format, with sidebars of Notes, and Pro Tips. Notes give further in depth explanation of processes or terms presented in the body text. The additional sidebar contains Pro Tips which are extremely useful tidbits that help speed up workflow and give finesse to the project.

The entire flow of the book and the thoroughness of the explanations encourages one to jump right in doing the projects presented. Mark emphasizes the organization of photo files on your system for easy retrieval, and gives specific ways of working to achieve easy file access, all the while acknowledging individual photographers' needs. His techniques are well presented with screen shots and photograph 'before and after' examples. Mark even goes one step further to demonstrate 'during the process' examples so one can see exactly the effect of the technique and be able to work right along side on your own computer.

The companion website he provides is especially helpful in working on projects along side Mark's descriptions.
