Easy and good book to start learning gimp, the author explain all the Tools, Filters, Layers and other features of this graphic program and how to use it, so you will get perfect basic information even on how to write scripts. I recommend it to beginners and professionals that maybe will get useful information. Really I enjoyed it.

I happened to correspond with the author of _Beginning GIMP_ about a
general problem with books about software and Open Source ** software in
particular. Books are written about the version available at the time
of the writing but new versions evolve and by the time the book is
published or read. The current Gimp version: 2.6.8 (December 10, 2009)

The author, Akkana Peck., wrote on 4/20/2010:
[The book] was based mainly on version 2.4 but it does talk about the
changes for 2.6: there's an appendix summarizing the changes, and I
try to mention it throughout the book when something has moved between
2.4 and 2.6.

** Open source software (OSS) projects are built and maintained by a
network of volunteer programmers and usually available to users at no
cost. Prime examples of open source products are the widely used
Apache HTTP Server, and the internet browser Mozilla Firefox.
