4.0 out of 5 stars Good bet, 26 Jun. 2002
If you're into to Freehand- this is your book.
The book is well thought out, extensive and even enlightening... ;o)
I've worked with this software for over five years now and I learned quite a few usefull hints from the author.
If you're in doubt over buying it- GET IT... you won't be sorry.
Of course there are some bugs (little ones) and for some people the book could use more screenshots, less "basic notions" explaining and more reference of alternate ways to produce the same effects (some of which are less time consuming). But through and through- its still a very good reference book.

4.0 out of 5 stars 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.
