I have 4 of the books in the series and I think of them mainly as picture books for inspiration. Most of the artwork is top notch and the quality of the reproductions is excellent. The tutorials on the other hand are very uneven in content as well as in the quality of the writing. The material offered in the tutorials seems to be repetitious (for example, how to make a custom brush in Photoshop must be covered about a zillion times). That said, digging deep, I found some snippets of insight and a couple of techniques which would have taken me a long time to stumble upon on my own. My recommendation would be to just look at the step by step screen shots and challenge yourself to figure out on your own how it was done then read the text only when you are stumped.
PS : I know this comes from a British publisher, but the persistent use of the word "whilst" for "while" (like in "whilst using this or that brush you may want to also set it's dynamics to this or that setting...) really got under my skin.

I have all five of these books and I enjoy the tutorial in them. I have learned a lot from the various artist. Highly recommended if you want to learn about digital painting.
