First of all i would highly recommend this to any one who's somewhat new to the adobe programs and would like to see how most of the basic(and even some of the more advanced features work)tools and features work for this suite. This is NOT a reference guide! this is meant to teach people the basics and make it stick. I had purchased the Dummies book for this suite as well and that is a reference book in my opinion.
Bottom line - If you are looking for a way to learn this suite i highly recommend getting this book/Digital classroom. If you have previous experience with the previous suites u may want to just get a reference like the dummies book that highlights the new features and fixes(or that is a pain in the butt compared tot he older versions).

As a hobbiest with html and infrequent user of Photoshop and even less with Illustrator, I wanted a solid learning resource for all major programs in this suite. Too much detail boggs me down and too little isn't worthwhile. I highly recommend this text especially for new users or those with really early versions of Adobe. Many new and easy-to-use tools in CS4! The included CD offers 5-7 minute videos showing an advance peak at what you'll be learning before doing each lesson in the book. This helps with following the written text. Consequently, I've moved through the book fairly quickly. But now I feel a bit confused trying to keep the applications separate. I think it's better to focus on a few applications you know you'll use - then do them repetively so you remember the steps! Then later explore some of the other applications. I now plan to look into separate 'quick reference' quides for InDesign (a brand new appication for me) and Illustrator. With Photoshop - I really like "Top 100 Simplified Tips and Tricks Photoshop CS4". The pictures and easy-to-follow steps are perfect for those of us who have no intentions of being a paid professional with the program.

This is a good book to get an overview on all major CS4 products. Don't expect in-depth information, but if you're looking for a quick jumpstart, this is a great choice.

Very clear and concise introduction to the mentioned Adobe Programs. Please keep in mind that they took chapters out of the more detailed Adobe books by the same company and put them together to provide an "Intro" book to a number of topics. I know this because I also have the Dreamweaver book by Aquent and the chapters from Dreamweaver here are from that book as well.

So if you want a good intro book this is it. Aquent has more detailed books on the topics if you want to learn more.

This is one of the few books that takes up ALL the CS4 Premium Design products in one package. I am not a geek but the language is accessible and the information is comprehensive. One thing I have learned over the years is to not try and learn everything all at once. I spend a couple days just on Photoshop, then a couple days on Illustrator etc. Adobe has really done an excellent job of integrating their products so they mostly all function like each other. I have several books on single apps in CS2, CS3 and now CS4 but this book - which I have only just started - will prove to be a very useful reference until CS5 comes out. The book is obviously composed by a team of experts who have thorough knowledge of the product. I can detect no weak spots.

As a photographer, i was familiar only with Adobe Photoshop. This book has a very good writing, it helped me learn the entire CS4 Design Premium programs in an easy manner.

This book is basically a tutorial, what it struggles to do is be truly relevant, if you're even moderately savvy in any one CS4 program then I recommend just youtubing user tutorials for the other apps because that is what I did while waiting for this to arrive and by the time it showed up I found maybe two interesting tidbits in the whole thing. It is well written, just does feature an indepth enough exploration of creative possibilities to really be interesting or relevant to me. I bought the design premium of CS4 and was at the time making a website with it, but this didn't really help me with any of my issues or problems. It doesn't teach you enough about anything. probably my fault for getting this rather than the dreamweaver specific one but I thought they'd cover the boring stuff quickly and get to whats interesting, I was wrong. If you are a novice and want your hand held the videos and book do that well, It is a good product, just not for me.
