4-0 out of 5 stars 10 Tutorials
10 step-by-step hands-on tutorials that cover most of the things a beginner needs to know. Kelby writes with wit and precision and a picture appears with every step. I highly recommend this book for beginners, but I would also suggest you buy a more complete reference book for Tiger (Pogue or Williams).

3-0 out of 5 stars Not Worth the money, but still pretty good
I've been in a fight w/ Apple and Peachpit over this 'new' version of DVDSP4.
3-0 out of 5 stars Not updated for DVD Studio Pro 4
While this book is probably the best DVD Studio Pro guide currently available, be aware that it doesn't contain any information about the new features in DVD Studio Pro 4 (e.g partitioning GPRMs and allocating menus to VTS folders). In fact, some of the statements made in this book, while true for DVD Studio Pro 3, are factually incorrect for DVD Studio Pro 4 (e.g. 1 GB limit for menus). Since I already have Martin Sitter's excellent Visual QuickPro Guide for DVD Studio Pro 3, this book was a waste of money for me. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars pricey but worth it
I know this seems abit pricey but its worth it. I dont have the attention span needed to read most books cover-to-cover. Even though this book is huge I have browsed it all and read most of it. Multiple times! Each time I find some new tidbit to use.

5-0 out of 5 stars The one unix book that I'd like to have if stranded all alone on an island with a linux system!!
I'm an analog IC designer moonlighting as a linux hacker (I'm actually addicted). I try to build software, write shell scripts and customize my desktop to death. I picked up this book a year or two back and I think I've probably used it almost every single day to look up something or the other. I probably own about 20 linux related books (more than my engineering books) but this is the one that I would run out with when the firealarm sounds. Here is my short summary of my feelings about this book.

1-0 out of 5 stars Great Book For Aperture LOWER VERSIONS
BEWARE.one star just to get your attention!
5-0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Book!
I was given the opportunity to review this book by an acquaintance, and I am very glad for the opportunity.It has totally changed the way I approach my digital workflow.My previous workflow started with a folder for each year, containing a folder for each month.Inside the monthly folders were still other folders for each shoot.I would download my digital RAW files in the root of each shoot folder.Then I would create 3 separate subfolders inside each shoot folder, (1) alt (for altered ), (2) fin (for final), and (3) out (for output).I would place the various iterations of each file in these directories for retrieval and sorting.I would open each RAW file in Nikon Capture and evaluate the shot.Then I would make any necessary alteration and save the required output files, whether for web, print, or archive.Sometimes the images would be opened in Photoshop for further work, and saved back to the same directory structure.This worked fairly well, but it was a very slow process.Finding images weeks, months, and years later was very difficult without going into each directory and looking through the saved files.Now I keep all of my files in the Aperture program, and it allows me to save all of the iterations side-by-side.Even those alterations made in Photoshop are saved as "versions" of my original digital file.It has cut my workflow time down significantly, but even more important, it has allowed me to keep track of all of the versions of my files together, making the finding and printing of previous files manageable.
5-0 out of 5 stars Just Right
I had recently purchased a digital SLR (after decades of film photography) and I had many other scanned images 'from way back when.'And with a fairly big digital project looming, I needed to be 'in the know' with Aperture -- and fast.The book was written well and gave the hands-on learner as well as the visual student something to get a hold of.This is my first Amazon review of a product (though I've purchased a ton of stuff over the years), but I really wanted to give my 'Thumbs Up' to this book for getting me set and ready to go.I did use the book as reference often, as I recalled, "I remember doing this in a lesson... but how.." and Orlando Luna & Ben Long got me prepared.Without much effort I got a photo-journalistic view of a recent wedding, edited & organized and then set up on one of my websites with Aperture.And I can safely say that it wouldn't have happened without this book.THANKS for your effors Orlando & Ben and Peachpress!I would recommend this book first, if you're new to Aperture, before going on to others. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Compehensive and More
Lisa wirtes one of the most (if not the best) comprehensive books about Final Cut Pro enabling almost anyone to "get it" when even the Apple Manuals and on line help do not. I had her version 4 book and now the version 5 book. I only hope she updatesit for version 6, 7, 8, 9 etc, that Apple most assuredly will continue to release.

5-0 out of 5 stars I Like The Visual Guide Format for Learning Software
The folks that do the Visual QuickPro Guides have developed an interesting format that they use for computer books. Basically each page has two columns. The outside column has the text that describes what is being done on that page. The column near the gutter of the book is used for screen shots that show what the screen should look like as you do the procedure described on the outside column. This philosophy is combined with an excellent index and table of contents to enable you to quickly find what you want to do.
5-0 out of 5 stars An invaluable reference!
Lisa Brenneis has done it again!This book is a great primerand a very thorough reference source.I studied it for several days before taking a course in Final Cut Pro and went into the class better prepared than I would have been without this book.

5-0 out of 5 stars iPod Book: Doing Cool Stuff with the iPod and the iTunes Music Store, The (2nd Edition)
Great book! Love the writing style. It's like reading a personal e-mail from a friend and is so easy to understand.I don't do well with manuals, as a rule.I'll purchase Mr. Kelby's books in the future without hesitation.

4-0 out of 5 stars Now we're talking!
I just want to thank the author,Scott Kelby for making this an easy step by step how-to book for iPod users. Thanks for using 'user friendly lingo' in your book! I can't believe how much easier it is to use my iPod now and how many features I am now using on my computer as well as my iPod. Great reference!

5-0 out of 5 stars Easy to use resource for the non-tech savvy
I bought this book because of the format - each page has a set of instructions for how to do one thing, ensuring that it is kept simple and concise. I have had a video iPod since Christmas 2005 and could figure out enough to make playlists, download, and rip but knew no other tricks. My library now looks cleaner, misspelled titles/artists are now corrected, and I know how to better organize my over 6000 songs.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good introduction and reference resource
This is a useful introduction to the Bash shell used in unix, linux, and other *nix type operating systems. It takes you from a very basic introduction into deeper concepts including shell scripting and customization. Highly recommended for the niche market it is intended to reach. I found it clear, useful and detailed without being dull.

5-0 out of 5 stars Essential linux skills.
This book (2nd. ed.) shows how bash shell programming exploits special capabilities of linux and unix. Shell programming manages other, more specialized, programs. So understanding the shell is essential to fully exploiting multitasking environments like linux.

4-0 out of 5 stars Brief but informative overview
"Iran: The Essential Guide to a Country on the Brink" is a brief but detailed survey of the history of Iran. While the book itself is not especially short-it's 240 pages-the chapters are very brief, some being a single page. Just about every topic is covered, from Cyrus the Great and the Achaemenian Dynasty to the current president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, and everything in between. This includes Iran's people, culture, resources, and politics. The chapters are arranged alphabetically which makes it a quick and easy reference. Being encyclopedic in nature, the book is relatively objective and does not seek to support or condemn Iran or it's people. Those with any significant foreknowledge of the region would probably not find much new here, but as an introduction, I would not hesitate to recommend this book.

The Islamic Revolution in Iran happened over a quarter of a century ago and Iran has often been in the news ever since.

Editorial Review

There's a reason that a large slice of the open-source movement has defected from running Linux on its laptops to running Mac OS X. The reason is the Unix core that underlies Mac OS X, and the development tools that run on that core. Cocoa makes it easy to create very slick Mac OS X interfaces for software (as well as to create applications in a hurry), and this new edition of Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome book for anyone looking to learn low-level
This book fills in most gaps you might encounter while learning about the low-level BSD/Mach aspect of Mac OS X and Darwin.Mach and BSD iokit is described in detail, and there are tons of useful code examples all over the book.This book even explains ipc and pipes very well, and isn't the size of the bible, like other books.It gets to the point as soon as you get past the TOC.

5-0 out of 5 stars Read This Book
If you're a Mac OS X developer and want to get serious about it, this book is mandatory. It is always on my desk right by the computer, and really is that perfect reference. Nothing really compares to this book, the previous Aaron Hillegass book is rather basic but is more of an introduction. I have a BS degree in CS and even though a lot of this has been covered, the rest of it is done in graduate school. So if you're looking for that little bit extra, give it a shot.

3-0 out of 5 stars Probably more helpful for people with no/little Unix experience
Although this book is well written in concept, the editing of the final product is awful.There are a great deal of grammatical errors which seemed to me a basic word-processor would have caught.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent look under the hood
I bought this book along with Mac OS X Server Essentials.While that book is good on the GUI interface, this book shows in good detail what is really going on under the hood and behind the scenes.I have a much better understanding of Open Directory and LDAP in general as well as Kerberos and Single Sign in logic. Many of the other services offered under OS X Server 10.4are also explained well.The command line information is good while not being so in depth as to lose the reader.You should have a basic familiarity with UNIX command line before trying to understand the concepts presented.The section on security is very good and presents a broad range of options to the administrator.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great book from a top-notch trainer
As another review states, this book is the guide for the relevant Apple ACSA courses.It succinctly provides you with an understanding of the basic information needed to attack the certification exams.
5-0 out of 5 stars Not for bedtime reading
This book is a one-to-one version of the course material found in the Directory Services Integration and Administration v10.4 course, the Security Best Practices v10.4 course and more. The exercises are well thought out and easy to do. Not so easy to remember are the 800+ pages, but it is not meant to teach you all you need to know about being an SysAdmin. It is enough to get you through these two exams, which give you 7 credits and the ACSA. And it is enough to set you off into a job as Junior SysAdmin or, as in my case, a supporter with server duties.

5-0 out of 5 stars Up and running on FCP in a week
If you are ever forced to quickly learn Final Cut pro for the odd job where Avid is not a viable option, or you want to start editing your on stuff on the cheap, buy this, read it and practise it for a week and you will be a Pro at Pro, knowing everything there is to know, at least, where to find it and whether it is doable or not. It is a book written by an Avid editor for Avid editors who have to go through the same learning curve. You can be very surprised going through it on how similar the two editing systems are and most of all, how quickly you can synthesise the information and make it second nature. I fervently recommend this book being so well written, going always to the point and covering everything properly.

4-0 out of 5 stars This book Yes Indeed
As an Avid editor and now learning FCP, I can recommend this book for helping to understand where everthing is.This book is a must unless you want to tear your hair out.If you know how it feels going from Media Composer to DS, then you will understand why you need this book and I might add others.

5-0 out of 5 stars Moving from Avid to FCP?This book is great!
We have been an Avid only edit house for years, but reciently purchased two Final Cut systems.Most of the transition was pretty easy, but trying to figure out how to do some of the things in FCP that we did in our sleep on the Avid slowed us down a bit.This book draws great parallels between the two systems. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Great recipes, easy steps, wonderful results.
This book puts you on the fast track to grafting the styles of famous artists into your own work through more than five dozen easy-to-follow recipes. Not surprisingly, you'll find yourself learning more than you originally expected to about Photoshop.

2-0 out of 5 stars not-so-fast ...
Earlier this year I reviewed what many will see as the companion volume to this book ("Photoshop Blending Modes Cookbook for Digital Photographers"), written by the same author. Unfortunately, the newer publication is less useful. It seems to have been written on a pretext that it's clever to be able to duplicate what traditional artists can do. This seems - from my own personal viewpoint - to be greatly undervaluing the power of Photoshop (and similar software). Practitioners of digital fine art should (really, constructively) be looking to explore what the principles of prior and traditional art can mean within a new domain.

4-0 out of 5 stars The perfect book for beginners
The book is clear, concise and comprehensive. It covers from how toget a domain name to how to accept credit card payments.I like the emphasis in formating using CSS instead html. This was a new concept for me. The author introduces java scripts and dynamic html. I missed a chapter about how to organize, and keep update the whole web site (sometimes with hundreds of web pages, pictures, icons, etc...). It was one of my first book about the topic and I really think that it's a powefull introductory book.

5-0 out of 5 stars An enjoyable walk through the essential steps in web site creation.

4-0 out of 5 stars Worth the money and your time ...
I have read author David Blatner's book on quark and being very familar with that program, I found his book on moving to indesign immensely helpful. You get great tips on how to do things that you have already established in your quark workflow. The index is well organized and a quick reference.

1-0 out of 5 stars Not well organized
Hard to find what I wanted. Preferred the Sams All in One for Creative Suite 2. Much easier to navigate. This book was a waste of money.

5-0 out of 5 stars It Moved Me!
As always with a Blatner book, this guide delivers exactly what it says it will. I was up and running in InDesign in no time and continue to reference its succinct text as I work. I recommend this to anyone who knows Xpress and wants to get InDesign going in a hurry. ... Read more
