It all started with a blade, in dimly lit rooms with chinagraph pencils and rickety hand-driven winders. Read the first page

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth it for newbies 24 July 2009
By M. Sear
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I liked this book. As a new user of the software it was a good intro for me. I'm probably not a heavy enough user of the software to get the best out of it though, there is definately a lot more depth in here than I needed. So in summary - great beginners guide with potential for more use by professionals. Worth the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brief but Best! 13 Jun 2008
By Henry D. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Rick Young's Final Cut Express guide is the best I've found, and I've checked out half a dozen. His breezy, informative style is simple, clear and comfortable. Text is profusely illustrated with specific, detailed graphics shown nearby, often within the same paragraph, which greatly enhances learning.
As a novice to this particular nonlinear video editing system, with a background in others, I found the book of great value. While I wish Mr. Young would offer an updated edition covering FCE's recent advances, I think the book is a better guide to the basics -- four years later -- than current books I've seen. I recommend it to video editors of any experience levels who want to learn Apple's Final Cut Express.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Little Book on Using Final Cut 20 Sep 2009
By John Possumato - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
While there are certainly longer, more detailed books on how to use Final Cut, as a new user I found this little book the most helpful, and, indeed, easy to use. If you buy only one book for the basics on Final Cut, this is the one to buy!
3.0 out of 5 stars Finally I began to get the program 10 Feb 2013
By Michael in OZ - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book was a good start and is still a good reference to go back to when I am trying to use Final Cut Express. A great program but not easy to master and I tend to forget some previously learned steps, so open the book to refresh my mind on how to achieve a certain something. The book could have been more comprehensive but then it would have been much thicker, heavier and more costly. So all things considered, a very good investment.
