Sorry that this isn't the most helpful. But I never learn anything about computers from books. I find it easier when someone teaches me. Right now, I'm taking weekly courses on mastering Final Cut Pro.

But if you want a book....uhh....my first thought would be Photoshop for Dummies? (Laughs) But I bet there are easier/better books to learn from.

I dont have time to take classes right now. I remember in my drafting class in High School, we learned to use AutoCad from both the teacher and a book. I think a book is a good way to get practice. Since it gives you tasks that go from basic to advanced as you go on. In a structured order, that you can always reference back to.

The included tutorials are a good way to learn the features, but you can't really LEARN the programs until you tackle a few projects in them. Play around with the features and then actually try to accomplish specific tasks. You could also try reading the manuals that came with said programs. I've only taken classes in web design and I suck at it. Never took any classes for video/photoshop/etc and that's where I feel my skills lie.
