If like me, you are new to movie making, this book must be top of your list. It takes you step by step from importing your movie into Final Cut Express 4 right through to the finished product including adding your own sound. The beauty of the book is that the included CD contains movie clips, sequences and sound tracks which you will use throughout the lessons. This has to be the ultimate in hands on training, everything is so well explained! At the end of each chapter there is ¿Lessons Review¿ by way of questions and answers plus a list of Keyboard Shortcuts. I have copied these and find them a very useful reference set. To detail everything in the book would mean writing another book. Suffice to say it is without doubt the best AppleTraining Series Book I have read so far. As an absolute beginner before I read this book I can now put together a good movie. Buy it! I guarantee you will not be disappointed.

I am glad I have purchased this book. The included DVD-ROM with the lessons and media files actually help to walk you through the course of the editing craft, though I'm not finished and only up to page 113, I am learning as I go, and I'm confident that I will master the craft, because of this book.
