Readers with no Photoshop experience will have some difficulty following some of the lessons, because the author assumes one has some basic PS knowledge. This book does not cover all the new CS6 updates in detail, so it is best to look in other books or the adobe.com site for that info.
First my main reservation. Well, its not so much a criticism as a matter of semantics. The books seems really to be about the basics of photoshop rather than what I'd call "Tips and Tricks". As such, it presents the basics and more advanced procedures for using most of the main tools in photoshop ( and Raw adjustments). So, its not special and less known tips, more about the main tools and adjustments in photoshop. i had hoped for some wiz-bang hot and new recipes for doing things in photoshop but instead I got a ( very good) book covering much of the standard tools of trade, so to speak. Still for my money it was dollars well spent and I feel as though my investment has more than paid for itself.
The book uses a very clear and easy-to-follow dot-point treatment of the use of the photoshop and raw tools, plus usually very pertinent warnings or tips where relevant. The titles of each section are clear and give you a good understanding of what you are going to learn.
Each 'lesson" is about two pages long. Not long and involved processes here, just the more basic operations most users are going to want to know.
Although the blurb says it assumes you already know the basics it seems to me a beginner could easily use this book and in so doing boost themselves to intermediate level.
if, like me, you are around an intermediate level user you will still find a vast amount of useful stuff. I'd say if you are a top-end user you are likely going to already know much of the content.
Each two-page section has a number of screenshots of photoshop screens, annotated with numbers which relate to the step-by-step guidelines in the section. I found the detail was meticulously done and very clear and precise.
I would recommend this book for beginners and mid-level users. if you are thinking of buying a guidebook for photoshop, as well, bear in mind basically this is what you will get with " Top 100 Tips and Tricks". By the way, they give you 117 tips - a 17-tip bonus, which is nice.
