Why does the world need another Photoshop book?

As a Photoshop neophyte in the early 1990s, I was always hungry for resource materials. I would scour the local bookstores looking to be informed and inspired. What I noticed then was that Photoshop books, more or less, fell into one of two categories.

There were books that contained beautiful collections of digital art. These books would inspire me with their rich and thought-provoking images, but they lacked detailed instruction on how to achieve those results. Apart from artistic inspiration, these books really didn't offer much to a guy who wanted to learn how.

The other option was books of a more instructional nature. Generally offering lots of information, instruction, helpful hints, and tips, I found these books always lacking in the inspiration department. Granted, I found some useful information in these books, but more often than not, I had to read the chapters on faith alone. Basically, I would hope that afterward, I could do something remarkable on my own with the knowledge they contained, because the imagery within those books never really impressed me.

What you hold in your hands is the book I always wanted. My aim is to inspire you as well as inform you. I have spent a great deal of time perfecting a variety of artistic styles and working practices in Photoshop. And I have also spent a great deal of time producing images that I hope will inspire you to learn. This book is for those of you who not only appreciate art, but also want to know in explicit detail, how to create it on your own. There seems to be an infinite amount of Photoshop books out there, and many of them are excellent. However, I still haven't found that perfect book that inspires as much as it instructs. After all these years I came to the conclusion that the book I was after didn't exist, so I decided to write it myself. If you are reading this right now, chances are you've been looking for the same thing too.
