Amazon review of the first edition:
"Outstanding straight-shooter workflow guide... I've dabbled with the software for over a year (from beta testing forward) and should have had a pretty solid handle on it by now ... that is, until Huss & Plotkin chastened me. I've gained a wealth of new tricks, and plucked many a pearl, from this book... this is a solid, well-rounded and comprehensive workshop on swiftly getting up to speed with LR - hard work, to be sure, but well worth the effort... it demands a lot of the reader, but you'll never be at a loss because text and figures are first-class... the knowledge gained here will be invaluable in using your limited time to best advantage."
