In promoting iMovie '11 Apple talked about three (I believe) big changes. My understanding was the rest was all the same. When I searched online for help, frequently the help was not there or it was for a previous version of iMovie. I was salivating waiting for this manual to arrive and it didn't disappoint (I ordered pre-release.) If you, like me, have never used a David Pogue missing manual before, have no fear! I learned more in two hours of reading than I have in two months of working with iMovie based on intuition and trial and error. It also has explanations for head banging questions of "why did the program just do that?" and quick fixes. Even if you've never used a previous iMovie, this manual is perfect. The authors address new users and upgrade users! It is the best user manual I have ever used, and I've been a PC and Mac user since the late 80's!

Book is not applicable for the Apple Yosemite Operating System. I chose to return the book.

Can't imagine working with iMovie 11, if I did not have my Missing Manual. In fact I have Missing Manuals for all my Apple applications as well as my iPod Touch. You get so much more use out of these items with the use of these easy to read manuals. Try one and there is no going back.
