I've been using PSP (now ver 9) for several years. Most of the books will tell you where to find specific commands and such, but not really "teach" you how to complete some intricate, and perhaps challenging design work.
I suggest only one way to really "Learn" PSP, and that is to do a search of PSP Tutorials. These teach you step by step and bring about some of the most beautiful designs imaginable.
If you wish to learn the first steps of PSP 9, namely understanding how to get started, I have some special tutorials written by people for anyone new to PSP 9.
Also, on the JASC web site, you will find 3rd party tutorials and they will help you along. I can also suggest, if you wish, to join a graphics list online, (there are many out there) and they have classes as well.

tutorials. I promise you won't be sorry.
