Like many people, I stepped up to Final Cur from iMovie, and was immediately swamped. I've tried several books/websites, and this is the best introduction by far. It starts with some essential explanation of all the setup decisions you have to understand with FC, and moves through the logic of basic editing to some of the more advanced features. It won't make you an expert, but you'll end up with a good understanding of the underlying principles of editing in FC and some of its associated applications, which means you'll be able to branch out with confidence that you understand how things work under the surface.
I personally much prefer this style to the step-by-step approach of other books, which tend to leave me feeling I know how to performa certain specific tasks, but without necessarily understanding how and why they wrk the way they do.
Its other great benefit is it's quite short - not a brick.
There are some irritating typos but they don't cause any damage, so I'm giving it five stars
