    Excellent reference that you need to have.

    The postman delivered the book today and I opened the package immediately. After checking the table of contents I referenced a question that I had not been able to get an answer to and there it was, in bold print. This manual is very well written, well organized and a great reference tool. I expect to master Aperture 3 (Well almost master) by applying the intuitive and clearly written lessons in the book. Obviously it helps when the author was envolved with the design of Aperture and has lectured and taught the program extensively.
