A great book for people of all skill levels and interests in film - even just movie buffs! Walter offers both the very interesting origins of physical film editing as well as the dawn of the digital movie age, and the crossover techniques that still exist today with the likes of Spielberg. At the very least there is some great info on editing techniques and understanding when to cut a shot and how to understand confident and nervous acting. There's something for everyone!

This, although in its 2nd edition is very theoretical. Which is quite good for the theory of editing. It tells you what to look out for when putting a movie together. It does meander on 'splicing' which refers to celluloid film and not digital within a computer. The last few added pages refer to digital editing, but still a good read if you are a fan of the films that Walter Murch has actually edited. These are referred to quite often through out this book. If you have no concept of cutting and splicing the old way, give it a miss and find something appropriate for you. I bought this for my students to read and it just didn't blow their skirts up.

If you want to get into video / film editing then buy this book as its a wonderful insight into the editing process - this guy has been editing since the 60s-present and its written in a really freindly, matey sort of way - very ingrossing and intriguing. The book is also fairly short so can be read quite quickly.
