I would highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to have a good working knowledge of Aperture 2. Information is presented in a useful way, with the lessons subtly introducing multiple methods of completing each task at once, allowing the reader to immediately pick up on the methods best suited to their working style. This book is especially useful to those not yet set in their ways, as the information helps to develop good working habits.
