"Pogue, the New York Times computer columnist, is among the world's best explainers."
-- , co-founder of Wired
"Can you imagine a software manual that makes you feel smart, not dumb? David Pogue's iPhoto 2: The Missing Manual does just that. It's written in a way that's easy to understand without being condescending. The straightforward style is well organized, sometimes humorous and always informative."

"Another excellent title in the Missing Manual series covers iPhoto 2, which has a number of improvements and new features...These [Missing Manual] texts are great examples of user documentation: plenty of detail, information easy to find, easy to read, and text supported by useful illustrations."
--Major Keary, AUSOM News, September 2003
"The book is peppered with useful information and tips that take you beyond the level that most of us discovered when we ran and used the program. The authors have also provided some marvelous explanations of what is going on, the 'why' as well as the 'what.' The book is well written with a readable, light, almost witty style that somehow deceives the reader as to the depth of the material being covered. It is only when I reflected back on how much the book taught me that I realised how well it had done the job."
--Tony Williams, slashdot.org, August 2003

--Al Fasodt of "The Post-Standard," June 2003
"'iPhoto 2: The Missing Manual' gives both the beginner and advanced user critical information for taking digital pictures as well as editing the photos...If you're like me, I use a basic set of tools but ignore some of the more powerful features. This guide will expand the usual boundaries that we impose on ourselves. As with all of Pogue's books, his authoritative and humorous explanations of complex activities is most welcomed. If you use a digital camera, this book is a must!!"
