Akkana Peck has written a very thorough introduction to the GIMP. In fact, I'd call it more of a definitive guide than just an introduction. This book is great for the completely new user, but even the seasoned veteran can learn quite a bit from "Beginning GIMP: From Novice to Professional".
Covering everything from where to get and how to install the GIMP to how to use the powerful built-in scripting language Script-Fu, which allows users to use and program scripts for repeatable actions, like adding bevel or glass effects. Despite its thoroughness - it's written in a easy-to-understand way that anyone can benefit from.
While this book is aimed at the GIMP, much of it applies to our very own GIMPShop. If you want to learn more about the GIMP or GIMPShop, you own it to yourself to pick up this book.
You can learn more about this awesome book on Akkana's website - GIMPBook.com.
