Scott Kelby's Lightroom Book

I'm in the process of reading Scott Kelby's new The Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Book for Digital Photographers. Because of my normal work responsibilities I'm only able to read a chapter every few days but I am already hooked. I've read other books by Scott - his Digital Photography Book and his Photoshop Channels Book, a great read on my flight back from Alaska last May - and this one has so far proven to be a great read. It is, of course, chocked full of great information and tips on how to make work in Lightroom faster, easier, and with the highest possible quality. And it wouldn't be a Scott Kelby book without the elaborate "non-introductions" at the head of each chapter - the first one is on a conspiracy theory surrounding the covert government plot to conceal stock piles of missing Chapter 1s in an unmarked Midwestern warehouse and Scott's heroic efforts to stand up to "the man" to bring us a Chapter 1 - or "An Unexpected Q&A Section" at the beginning of the book.

I'll write a more comprehensive review when I'm finished, complete with some of my favorite tips. Already, though, I know this is going to be great!
