Just getting started with this one and already can see how good it is. I bought the higher-level "advanced editing" version before this which even as a newbie to FCPX I was easy able to follow. However, this version has the same structure but with a much better twist - you work on one project continuously so you can understand the learning within the context of an actual production.
Having been pretty proficient with FCPX from the other book, I am already learning new tips and shortcuts in the 1st three chapters of this one such as what external an managed media is and the pro/cons; using JKL keys in brower windows; how to import multiple favourite sections of multiple clips and many more.
If you are new to FCPX then this is 100% for you. The material is interesting and with the context of an ongoing production throughout, you really get a good idea of the power of this awesome application. If you're looking at this book, then don't think anymore - just get it!!
