       ah, yes, a good book ... a readable manual ... ... ...

       I've tried at various times to read these supposed helpful manuals
only to discover more confusion ... it's like reading a foreign language
yet there's no dictionary to use for help;
           and if they happen to have sketches ... well, these tend not to
correspond with the written document.

       Automobiles, since becoming computerized, supposedly have these
helpful manuals - but reading them for something as simple as changing the
clock [an inane idea anyway] is next to impossible ... the trained
mechanics even have trouble with this one - it took 3 of them about 1/2
hour to finally figure out that one vehicle's settings were tied into the
radio dials but only if the engine was running and the gear was in park  ;-)

Ahh!  The Gimp.  Great program and I do have some use for it.  However,
learning it has a _steep_ learning curve for me and, frankly, sitting at
the screen and reading the online manual is not what I would prefer using
my limited time for.  There are several "learning" books out there, but
which one is the best one I need to learn The Gimp?  That is my problem
with it.  Once or twice I fiddled with it and got it to do somewhat what I
wanted, but it wasn't very intuitive and I feel it could do so much more
for me.  If I could just get a good book on it and sit down and play with
