The issue I have is with the quality of the printing. This, of course, is not the authors' fault. The book is printed on low quality paper and many of the pictures are impossible to discern. I understand printing in color is prohibitively expensive, and most textbooks nowadays are printed in black and white. But the quality of many of the pictures in this book is so bad that you can't see anything. Anything. How does that help you learn to use the software? Yes, the book has online resources, but when you pay $60 for a printed version, you want to actually use the printed version.
I would give the authors 5 stars, but I'm being generous giving the book itself a 3 star rating.
