Advanced Photoshop Book Suggestions

I'm in the market for a book that details advanced photoshop techniques through tutorial instruction (much like the "Classroom in a Book" series). I have a good handle on the basics but feel like I can advance to the 'next level' with regard to my work in it.

I'm posting here to see what all of you recommend (for those that enjoy learning by following a book from start to finish).

Thanks in advance.

If you want to do logo design, I sould suggest you use Adobe Illustrator.
It works far better than Photoshop for Text and shapes.

I quite like Photoshop Studio Techniques for a broad but detailed look. It's not a tips and tricks book but is excellent for deepening your knowledge about the whys and wherefores.
