Finally got around to ordering it. Markus, thanks for the effort on the review. I clicked through to Amazon from your page; hopefully you'll get a few pennies for the effort.
thanks a lot!
In the meantime I am reading two other LR books and although not bad, nothing so far comes close to Martin's book if you really want to master LR2.
Reviews of those books will follow soon.
I also have the video by Jeff and Michael. It's great and complements my learning from Martin's book.
