I recently brought the book GIMP 2.6 Cookbook.
When opening the book, I was very disappointed that all the numerous
images inside the book was printed in black/white, no color at all
except on the cover.
I find it outright stupid to print such a book without color. I have
other books with full color which wasn't significally more expensive
(such as Beginning GIMP).
Don't buy this book.
