I’ve got a bunch of book news, so I thought I’d put it all in one quick post, so here goes:

  • Joe McNally’s landmark book, “The Moment it Clicks” is already sold out just about everywhere, and the publisher has already gone back to press for a 2nd printing to print another 25,000 copies, so if you want to get yours as soon as they’re available, preorder yours now at Amazon.com or Barnes&Noble.com. Congrats to Joe for creating the most highly acclaimed photography book in years! Note: Here’s a recent review on Joe’s book from Michael Clark Photography [link], and an in-depth review from David duChemin at the PixelatedImage blog.
  • On Saturday I saw one of the first copies off press of Matt Kloskowski’s new book, “Layers: The Complete Guide to Photoshop’s Most Powerful Feature” and it came out just beautifully (some of the people who pre-ordered his book have already begun receiving their copies). His step-by-step method is really ideal for learning Layers, and his whole project-based approach really makes the book stand apart. Here’s the link to it on Amazon.com and Barnes&Noble.com
  • Here’s some recent reviews I’ve run across on my book, The Digital Photography Book, Vol. 2:

    > Professional Snapshots.com (link)
    > Hal Maclean (link)
    > Mike Lao (link)
  • Also, ThinkCamera.com picked my book, “The Photoshop CS3 Book for Digital Photographers” as one of their top five books of 2007. I would have really been excited, had they not prefaced the mention with, “Some hate his worn-thin humour. Some dislike the fact that he tells you what to do rather than shows you how to do it,” particularly because it’s true. Hey, I am what I am. ;-) (Here’s the link).
  • Also, I’ve just finished up the latest edition of “The Photoshop Elements 6 Book for Digital Photographers” and it’s on it’s way to press, so we should see copies before long. And, for this latest edition, I brought in my buddy, and Photoshop User TV co-host Matt Kloskowski as my co-author, and I’m totally psyched about having Matt on board. He rocks the houseski (Sorry, I couldn’t help myself). Here’s links to the book on Amazon.com and Barnes&Noble.com

Thanks for reading for this episode of the Book Report.
