I just want to warn potential buyers that this book is out of date. If you have the latest version of Final Cut Pro X you have to download 64 A4 pages of amendments to the book!! It is not only very tedious to have to refer back and forth to the update document but expensive if you prefer to print them out. I really think that Apple and Amazon should have put this warning on this product and discounted it a lot further.

Just getting started with this one and already can see how good it is. I bought the higher-level "advanced editing" version before this which even as a newbie to FCPX I was easy able to follow. However, this version has the same structure but with a much better twist - you work on one project continuously so you can understand the learning within the context of an actual production.

Having been pretty proficient with FCPX from the other book, I am already learning new tips and shortcuts in the 1st three chapters of this one such as what external an managed media is and the pro/cons; using JKL keys in brower windows; how to import multiple favourite sections of multiple clips and many more.

If you are new to FCPX then this is 100% for you. The material is interesting and with the context of an ongoing production throughout, you really get a good idea of the power of this awesome application. If you're looking at this book, then don't think anymore - just get it!!

I was already editing in FCP X 10.1 when the book arrived, and I am so glad that I decided to start again and go back to square one with this text book. (Yes, it was a real book, not an electronic one.)
The structure of the lessons, and the patient explanations are not patronising, but make sure that you really understand the minute details, and the reasons for structuring your editing in the way you are taught.
You start by downloading media which is used in the lessons to demonstrate and practice the various techniques in all aspects of post-production.

It's not for the faint-hearted, and certainly not for the quick-edit of your holiday video. Designed for the aspiring professional editor, and for the serious amateur, like me, it will open your eyes to a range of possibilities previously unknown.

I haven't yet finished the whole course, but so far cannot fault it.

This book and course comes in a poor second place to the Diana Weynand book which is a great introduction to FCPX. I am afraid this is Apple applying the 'fix it when it is not broken'. It is a great shame that they did not get Diana Weynand to do an updated book for the 10.1.3 version as the Brendan Boykin approach will put many people off fcpx.However it is helpful for experienced editors who need a conversion course.

Excellent content written in a very easy to understand way which assumes very little prior knowledge. However the kindle formatting is all over the place making parts of the book almost unreadable. If you can get the iBooks version which has none of the problems of the Kindle edition.
