I agree. I like George's approach. You'll get lots of detail and demonstration of step by step ways of working. His steady (almost plodding) and friendly approach is intentional and great for groking something that had escaped me previously. I go to George when I want to remember or learn or re-learn specific things. (One exception to this is his understanding of sharpening in the detail panel - which I find a bit odd.)
We live in an amazing time. I have all the LULA tutorials, which give me a lot of the "why" and "how it was built" along with the "doing" of things and a huge 30K feet altitude view of all things digital. And, insights into Jeff and Michael's (and now Eric's) thinking are of huge value. And now we have Jeff's detailed books for learning and reference. And this forum for when we run into stuff that doesn't "fit" anywhere else (or at least so we suppose in the midst of trauma!).
I very much admire Julianne Kost, but her frame of reference and "assumed knowledge" is so huge that I'm almost always about five steps behind her when she's "'splainin' something"
. Kinda like when I look up a word in the dictionary only to find that I have to look up all the words in the definition to get it. LOL
And the modest cost of electronic information and modern day publishing makes it pretty darn accessible. I hope all these folk are making a ton of buck on their efforts. Eight zillion "little sales" from all over the world, I hope. They deserve it.
