This is a terrific book.
If you have read any of the older versions, including the first edition or the older ACR version entitled simply "Camera Raw", you will find much of the same material, including many of the same example images. So perhaps not so valuable for an experienced ACR or LR user. However, if you are new to either, you really can't beat the author's in-depth coverage of editing capabilities. Jeff Schewe is the top dog here!
Also keep in mind that this book emphasizes image adjustments and edits to raw files; it is not a comprehensive manual for LR, but comes close to comprehensive for ACR. (Martin Evening has a wonderful book on LR that does cover everything.) There are some details on using LR and Photoshop (PS) of course, as moving images into and out of these applications is almost always part of the work flow.
So 5 stars if you are a new user. The book's production values are high; full color through out and nice coated paper. (I have read several other PS/LR/ACR guide books that use paper akin to newsprint and have color images only bound into a small number of coated pages in the middle of the book.
Jeff has worked closely with Adobe for many, many years. He provides insight into why the software works the way it does, and why Adobe made decisions regarding the new licensing plans. These are very interesting although strictly speaking won't help you learn the workflow.
Highly recommended for those new to ACR/LR and adds coverage of new features for experienced users.
