I upgrade my Real World Photoshop when I upgrade Photoshop itself. This is the only book that truly covers Adobe's colour management. While it is true that there is very little change from the last edition, those changes are critical for using Photoshop's newest colour management tools. The authors have also made Adobe Gamma setting more reasonable by using a monitor colour temp of 6500k instead of the yellowish 5000k, and by recommending the contrast be lowered to something that looks good instead of full-on, which is really bad on the eyes, if nothing else. Finally BruceRBG is a colour space that works beautifully for inkjet users. I've advised many people to try it and they usually report much easier time going from monitor to print. I notice that Bruce himself says in this edition he does not use it as much as he used to, but I still find it the best colour space for my work -- except for the web. BruceRGB is a printers colour space and has no value in web publishing.
There are no neato effects like in the WOWIE! type books. I consider that to be a plus. Your opinion may vary.
If I were allowed only 2 books on Photoshop this would be one. Katrin Eismann's book on retouching would be the other
