Reviews - What do customers think about Better Gray in Print on Demand: How to improve grayscale appearance in toner based, 600 dots per inch printing?

A valuable resource in a league of its own . . .  Dec 25, 2007
This book was a great find! It offers a wealth of information that is just not available anywhere else. If I had discovered this resource sooner, it would have eliminated the need for so many proofs to get an acceptable book, and saved me a lot of time and money. Techies will be pleased at the depth of the information, but even at a basic level it is quite helpful.
Stunning results and how to get them.  Apr 3, 2007
I thought I knew everything I should about getting the best results from photos in print on demand. I was wrong. Martin Koch's stunning results made my jaw drop. Frankly, I'm a Photoshop Elements kind of guy myself, so some of this meaty little booklet was over my head. But if you have access to the full Photoshop and a little skill in working with it, I'm sure you'll find this booklet even more rewarding than I did.

By the way, Martin's from Germany, and English is not his native language, so you'll need to forgive the occasional error in language. This book is not about polish, it's about practical information. And believe me, it delivers.
Dreadful...don't waste your money on this book!  Apr 3, 2007
As the title suggests, the author of this book MAY have figured out how to improve photo reproduction in print-on-demand books, but he does a very poor job of communicating his techniques to the reader. The book is completely lacking in organization, has not been edited or proofread, and is virtually useless. I have used Photoshop for more than a decade, and I could not follow this text. If you're a beginner looking for a step-by-step guide, this is most assuredly not it. Treat yourself to a nice lunch instead. I would have returned the book, except that I did underline a few items in a failed attempt to find something, anything, that was minimally useful. I'll give the author a few points for identifying a common problem and attempting to solve it, but before he prints one more book, on-demand or otherwise, he should hire a developmental editor and rewrite this book from scratch.
