The Artist’s Guide to GIMP
Decided to take a little detour from the world of technology and check out a different book. This one happened to be on GIMP. While I’ve always appreciated the power and versatility of GIMP, i’ve never really known how to make use of about 99% of the features it contained. That’s where this book comes in handy. While I have zero aspirations to ever do any graphical design (professionally, anyways), there’s always a client here and there who want’s a logo redesign for the site or whatnot.
The content and flow of the book was excellent—especially for someone who has no idea what they’re doing. This book provided a great foundation on the tools and versatility of GIMP and the examples were relatively simple to follow along with. Overall, I am quite satisfied with this book and it will make a handy reference for down the road when I actually need to use it.

And also, for the fellow Mac peeps—GIMP is now a native app. No more of the X11 nonsense.
