I love Matt's work and have the hardcopy this book. His presentations are well laid out and easy to follow. My only quibble is the price of the iBook. I agree with the previous post that purchasers of the hardcopy should be able to purchase the digital copy at a discounted bundle rate. I believe the Kindle version is discounted so why not do the same for the iBook version?

Equal to "Layers"

As Matt always does, covers the subject completely in concise, easy to follow sections.

I wish we could get the print book AND the eBook combo for something less than full price.

Would make the iPad for reference perfect for working in Photoshop.
