I purchased the book and read through a bit of it.
I then decided to go to the web site that is advertised as the replacement for the dvd that normally accompanies a book of this nature and expense. The website while reachable would not download the materials as promised.
As far as I'm concerned a waste of money and time.
If you have it review his CS5 book or borrow it (or his CS6 book) from your local library, and then enroll for a month to kelbytraining and/or linda.com for the new features reviews and explanations, you'll be ahead in money,time and aggravation.
Karsten Dam: Fine. I just purchased Lightroom 3.6 a month ago in an Adobe shop and paid 150 euro. If I upgrade now I'll have paid double for v. 4.0 !!Phoned Adobe "customer service" a few minutes ago. No free upgrade for me. They were literally laughing at me.
I'll never buy any Adobe products more in my life.

tom60634: DxO at its inception made no claim to support anything but "Professional" camera and lens combinations i.e Canon,Nikon etc,etc.. In the case of Panasonic I believe their camera/lens corrections are built into the product. Some of the other cameras are nowhere near to be considered a "professional" rig.
The real problem can be addressed by the camera manufacturers themselves. They only need to subscribe to standard DNG format as their RAW format and most of the delays encountered while formats are being updated in various image processing programs would disappear. Pentax should be congratulated for offering both PEF and standard DNG as raw formats.
You'll have to check with DxO about that. They include the Nikon 1 series but not the Leica M9 ?As the years have gone by they seem to be concentrating on the volume that the consumer market provides.How many m4/3s NEX3s and Nikon1s are sold compared to a $8 or 9 thousand U.S dollar rangefinder throwback design.
