"not just theory real world stuff"

I stick to my recommendation if this what is desired. I find many PS books try to explain too much and a beginner needs to start (and participate actively) with the most basic concepts before reading lengthy paragraphs of explanations. In classroom in a book the "why" is so basic it needs not explaining, why am I cloning out the boat in the water? Why am I giving Mr. Potato Head a hat? You don't really need the explanation and you get an opportunity to just jump in and starting doing stuff. That is how many people learn, then they can go and get themselves a "better" book and understand it.

Regardless of what angle you're pursuing PS you still need the basics. Video training is nice too, although I have no specific recommendations for that,

Check out VTC.com they have some great video tutorials on Photoshop and many other things as well. I don't think there is any better way to learn than by watching someone else.
