Practical book for portrait/general retouching?

I'm looking for a good practical book on retouching with the emphasis on practical.
I know how to use Photoshop and Lightroom (no, I'm by no means an expert and still have pleny to learn) meaning I know how to use the software but I don't have much experience in how to practically apply it for improving photos. I could need a good book on the subject of general retouching/editing portraits, people and general photography (a little bit of everything).

Are any of the following books what I might be looking for?
  1. Skin by Lee Varis
  2. Professional Portrait Retouching Techniques for Photographers Using Photoshop by Scott Kelby (obviously not covering Lightroom though).

Re: Practical book for portrait/general retouching

My first post here, looking forward to learning and sharing my knowledge: one book I have now that has been very helpful, Photoshop Restoration & Retouching, by Katrin Eismann, a few years old but I find I still refer to it when needed. Another is Ctein's Digital Restoration from Start to Finish: How to repair old and damaged photographs, this book came highly recommended to me from the LinkedIn forum and I plan to buy it this week in fact!
