What's a good book for someone who's trying to learn Illustrator to beef up their resume? Thanks.

I have started for about a few months, for different reasons, but starting out is not easy. I wonder what others think about this because when learning maths or programming I found it alot easier to find teaching material. With illustrator I feel like the explanations are very very short and dense. I recently just found this link:

http://help.adobe.com/en_US/Illustrator/14.0/illustrator_cs4_help.pdf

and it is a complete book really. A steep learning curve that has little mercy, but is definitely better than the for dummies book which had pages of going nowhere.
(any other views)
Best,
Alex M.

Yes, AI's help file seem to be very good and thorough. If you already paid for AI (assuming you did), there's no reason to spend money on a book that explains the same thing again, but just maybe using different wording - unless, of course you are a book collector, or like the smell of new books (which I do).
