"One of the beauties of the Missing Manuals is that there is always something new to discover and the research is quite thorough...I kept finding snippets of information, in the way of Tips or Notes, that would give just that bit extra."
-- , Bangkok Post
"There are a lot of good books, but I keep returning to the Missing Manual series because they are inexpensive, easy to read and full of cool tricks and tips."
-- , The South Bay Apple Mac User Group
"As ever, I'm impressed with the Missing Manuals and highly recommend them to those who want to how to use or get the most from their application. If you use iPhoto and don't have the previous version of this book, you need it. If you have a previous version of the book but have upgraded to iPhoto 5, do you need the new version of the book? That depends--not if you do not want to use the new features; but highly likely if you do. Now having written this review I will be dashing back to the book to work though it more slowly, with my digital camera in my hand!"
"I have reviewed quite a number of Missing Manual books and I am always impressed with them. David Pogue is a Mac master and the depth of his knowledge shines through."

"Authors David Pogue and Derrick Story are on their game in their latest book in the Missing Manual series... This book is a very valuable tool to have to learn how to use iPhoto 05 more effectively... I highly recommend it if you are interested in photography."
--Marianne Young, MIAMUG Mouse Tales, July 2005
"The subject of this review, iPhoto 5: The Missing Manual is IMHO, one of the finest books in the series, although my personal interest in digital photography may color my perspective somewhat. Nominally 'the book that should have been in the box,' iPhoto 5: TMM is a lot more than a surrogate users-manual for iPhoto 5, although it is certainly that. However, it also provides all of the essential technical tools you need to produce professional quality photos and photo presentations in a single volume."

"This iPhoto 5 manual offers a whopping 400 pages of tricks, tips, and good, solid information you won't find anywhere else. If it sounds like too steep of a learning curve, let me assure you that this is NOT your father's technical manual. It's user-friendly, well-designed, and long overdue."
--Bonnie Bruno, Wonderkorner.com, May 2005
"iPhoto 5 is such a richly featured program that a manual is necessary to make use of its full potential. This book is essential for any Mac user who works with photos. While iPhoto 5: the Missing Manual is an update to an excellent iPhoto series, the addition of full color pages makes it much better than its predecessors. The book covers everything anybody would ever want to do to or with their digital photos...Overall, this is an excellent book, well worth adding to the library of every Mac user."
--Ed Noonan, MacNewsNetwork.com, May 2005
"'I've often said you won't go far wrong buying a Pogue Press book, and the new iPhoto 5 The Missing Manual (iP5MM for short) is yet another example of a well-written computer software manual. Pogue and Derrick Story have been writing about iPhoto since version 1, and he's got it down to a science. But with many new and important changes in iPhoto 5, there's plenty of information to write about...MyMac.com rating: 5 out of 5."
