Crafting Digital Media: Audacity, Blender, Drupal,&hellip by Daniel James

As a newcomer to being a potential Linux user I need to know what programmes are available in this alien system, what they do, how reliable they are, and how to learn to use them. This book is a great guide. I repeat what I have said in all my previous reviews from the perspective of a novice. A good book inspires in the reader the confidence to use and want to learn more about the topics that it discusses. This book provides a great introduction to a range of programmes and, in my case, inspires the reader to go on to learn more from other books in the future. I hope that others may feel as I do after reading it.

2.0 out of 5 stars I am a dummy-Help!, 27 Sep 2010
We are all different in how we approach learning and how we adapt to things. It may be my age, (65yrs), but the way I like to learn is to be shown how to do a simple exercise, become confident,and learn from this point onwards with increasing confidence. I can build my knowledge base and confidence if I can get over this first hurdle. Sadly, this book has not helped me to do this, but maybe,that is just me.

I am still reading this book, am about half way through. My first impressions are that it takes all the fear out of trying out this o.s. that I have never used before. I find it very easy to understand, and I like the fact that I can take out of it as much information as I need to get up and running and then refer back for any more information on a need to know basis
