If you haven't got a clue- this your book, 26 Jun. 2002
If you want an easy, step-by-step, walk through Freehand 10, this book is definetly your starting point.
Its written for anyone to understand, using lots of screenshots, practical tips, useful suggestions, etc.
I find it much more enlightening to have a "physical" book than reading through the tutorials. I've worked with freehand since version 5.5 and I learned quite a lot (particularly about the new tools) from this book.
I wouldn't really recommend this book to any intermidate or advanced users (get Ron Rockwell's "Freehand 10"), but if you're a begginer or you're into teaching Frehand (my case) this book will help you out.
The examples could be prettier and more far-fetched, but they serve their point. By carrying out the lessons in this book, you'll use practically all of Freehand's tools and options, and most of them are explained, so that you'll have enough light on topics to continue on your own learning.
