    many options

    An aesthetically pleasing book. Heid looks at Apple's latest offering, which is a powerful suite of {iTunes, iPhoto, iMovie, iDVD, GarageBand}. Each of the programs has been well received by Apple's fans. All have Apple's trademark of careful UI design. Plus, the book has numerous screen captures, that are well integrated into the accompanying text. The publisher also deliberately chose high reflectivity paper for the pages. Makes the diagrams sharper and improves the tactile nature of the pages. A major emphasis of the book is not on each program, per se, but on what iLife represents. A well chosen diagram shows how you can move data from one program to another. The synergy of iLife. It increases the value of each program and the flexibility of the entire package. What Apple is offering is for you to maximise your creativity, by giving as many options as possible.
