If you need a book then you should check out Scott Kelby. I believe it was D-Frag who posted about him several years ago which is how i learned of him. I have one of his books at home (a gift from someone) and I did learn some techniques from it. Just google his name and you will get all kinds of info about him.
I could give you a dose
but it would never come close
to the rage built up inside of me
fist in the air in the land of hypocrisy

I agree Scott Kelby is a genius when it comes to teaching photoshop. I joined his site for a year and learned bunches of new stuff I didn't know. Sadly, it was a bit pricey and I couldn't afford a second go at it.
My eye keeps going to the empty space on the cover next to his left arm. The overlap of text in his right arm is OK. I would zoom in the photo just to fill more of the empty space, but not allow the subject...
