As others have commented this is not for the beginner and I have to say some of went above my current knowledge. However, with the associated files, I think I will get the areas I was a bit puzzled by later. But I have dipped in and out of this, and am very impressed. This is not a rehash of all the same old effects, or walkthroughs. Rather, it explains the next stage - how to composite well, the problems and workarounds for e.g keying.
Overall an excellent book, but if you're just starting out - try the Meyer book or online training.
If you want to suddenly get some of the more advanced topics, this is the best book I've seen and there were quite a few "eureka" moments reading it.

Everything you wanted to know about AE in detail. The chapter on Roto Brush and rotoscoping is especially useful. Mark has really gone to town in his explanations in precise detail.

This is a very good overview of Visual Effects and AE but if you are a beginner and used to Adobes style of structured tutorials this book is definitely not for you.

AE is complex and full of tools that you may never use. Unfortunately this book does nothing to enlighten the casual or semi-pro user as to the whereabouts or structure of the use of tools within AE.

This book is ideal for those with a strong and full understanding of AE but is definitely NOT FOR THE BEGINNER!!
