Hi have I missed any discussion of books by Vincent Versace, like From Oz to Kansas?

Anyone have any opinion about the man and the books?

Are there better alternatives?

You would have to look at the archives.  I vaguely remember some discussion of the B/W conversion book mentioned above.  I do a lot of B/W processing and have a number of books in my collection including the Versace book.  I was not impressed.  My favorite book on conversion is the one by Leslie Alsheimer and Bryan O'Neil Huges, "Black and White in Photoshop CS4 and Photoshop Lightroom."  The explanations of the workflows are better IMO.

I have to agree with Alan. I think the Versace books are really "workbooks" and intended to take you through a workflow that was impressive when I first went through it, but is now supplanted (for me) by Tony Kuyper's TK Action Panels for luminosity masking. Reading between the lines of the Versace books, you can pick up some very interesting thought on how to analyze an image.
