Loved the book have to agree about the background images though...

I'm not even done with this book yet; I am ingesting it slowly even as I sit in front of my edit station. Some of the questions that I have had for a long time were answered in the first chapter. It is definately not a how to book; it isn't a tutorial based or program specific book. Think of The Art and Science of Digital Compositing by Ron Brinkmann (which I also own btw). Imagine being able to pick the brains of some of the most successful editors of our time. That is what this book is like. Sitting at a coffe house or at the dinner table and just listening to what they all have to say about the craft. I would recommend this book to anyone involved in the creative process at any level: animators, producers, writers, etc. All can benefit from the information in this book. I'm sure I'll come back and write an full review when I'm actually done with the book. I'm surprised that there are so little reviews about it. I've been telling everyone I know to buy it. Especially since you can get it for such a low price. Anyway, I have to agree with "garyj_temple" on this one. The content is sure to be timeless. This stuff will be relevant for years to come. However, they shot themselves in the foot by putting the text over those images. I'm still giving it 5 *'s though; the good things definately out weigh the bad...

Loved It - Hated One Thing!

Loved the content. A great book. Not how to do it, but more of a look into the minds of some great editors. One major flaw is a result of a great idea - gone wrong. Text is presented over image backgrounds. This makes for tired eyes at the end of a long read. In a few cases, there is black text on very dark background. You have to want to know what it says to put the effort into reading it. I'm sure there will be many negative comments on this aspect of the book. However, I'm sticking with my 5 STARS. I believe the content was that good. There was only one chapter that I found ordinary. Great insights on almost every page.
