I have lR 3 but have not upgreded my LR books.

I have Scott Kelby's LR2 book. I found it helpful in the fact that
Scott's books give you a step by step print screen window which i find
very helpful.

I had earlier photo shop books that just showed you the start and end
stuff, but was vague in the middle. I bought one book on working with
IR that was given 5 stars on Amazon dot ca and i found it poorly
written, almost as if i had done it.:-)
It would show the original photo, then he would say something like "
and then i applied some filters and layers and stuff and this is what
i got" and then showed the result picture.

I need to be walked through stuff at first.
