MS4D is without a doubt, the best source for guidance and information concerning Manga Studio. Doug does an excellent job to explaining manga studio's many functions and words it in such a way that you won't feel overwhelmed. This book as seriously increased my competence with the program, and I still go to it for help and reference when I get stuck. The best thing about this book is that even though the book was made for MS3, almost all the information inside works for MS 4 as well!
If you have Manga Studio or are thinking of picking up a copy, be sure to get a copy of this book as well. You won't regret it.
