No secrets, great tips though

When you can find these tips on literally hundreds of websites across the internet, I'd hardly call any of them 'insider secrets', type 'photoshop tips' into a search engine and you'll find all the resources you'd ever need to help improve your retouching abilities. However, this book has a lot a great tips and high quality tutorials on retouching and they're all in one place which will help make your job easier. It has certainly reduced the time it takes me to retouch photos and i'm also getting consistently better results so I recommend this book to anyone in the field.
