Are there ideas and items in the book that a lowly PSE5 user could take advantage of? 
Most of the stuff I have seen in articles was directed at CS users.

Absolutely.  The operations involving layer blending modes, curving in Lab or CMYK, and some of the general discussions involving color. - Mike

I purchased my first copy of Dan's book when I had PSE3 and curvemeister and I could relate, not necessarily understand, most of the book. I believe one can learn from it. ;D

Just looking at the 3 books I have and the series numbers are confusing. The first I got was Professional Photoshop -the classic guide to color correction  6 (pub July2001), then Photoshop LAB Color (pub 2006) and now Professional Photoshop 5th edition (pub2007) How did we get from 6 to 5 ? ???

I would hope so - I've been referring ptoplt to the Professional Photoshop as a logical place to go after the beginners Curvemeister 101 class. Perhaps this is too big a jump?

The numbers are confusing  Here's how it stand as of today, when there are four editions of Professional Photoshop out there, and a fifth on the way:

Edition 1, "Professional Photoshop", 1995
MakeReady, 1996
Edition 2, "Professional Photoshop 5", 1998
Edition 3, "Professional Photoshop 6", 2001
Edition 4, "Professional Photoshop (now updated for Photoshop 7)", 2002
"Photoshop LAB Color", 2005
Edition 5, "Professional Photoshop", 2007 (I have not seen this yet)

Here's an interesting discussion of the latest book:

those dgrin discussions are great!

I got some amazon vouchers so ordered pp5. unfortunately I didn't realise that taken the free delivery option meant they won't even get off their butts to mail it to me until 2nd Jan. so I'll have it eventually, I have a bit of time to read this week before back to work. Sweden next week and stateside for a change the week after :)
