1.0 out of 5 stars Buyer beware, 31 May 2007
I appreciate that there are reviewers here who think this Zone Alarm (ZA) product is the best thing since sliced bread, and I would have agreed with them up to buying this version of the security suite...

This book is excellent in the way it brings to life the entire creative process from pre to post production. Not only is it superbly written, particularly with regard to both its documentary and anecdotal aspects, but it is also lavishly illustrated with both orignal artworks and stills from both sides of the camera. It also records the process of developing script elements with the actors during production and describes some of the scenes left on the 'cutting… Read more
