If you really need a $45 300 page book on Fauxtoshop layers just give up right now. Talk about total overpriced overkill!

There are plenty of free on-line resources.

RockyNook books are excellent! There are less expensive books on the market, but few publishers can match the quality of both content and printing of RockyNook. If I am going to invest the time in reading a book, I look at more than just the cover price.
