It's always tough choosing which 'How To' book to go for, but I thought what the heck and went for the official Adobe one.

I was after an easy to follow introduction to AE for someone completely new to the program, and in that respect this book delivers. The thing is, AE is such a sublime program, you'll quickly want to advance . . . where this book can't take you.

I've recently spent extra money to get Total Training's AE DVD, the "Studio Techniques" book, and I've also scoured online - *There are a lot of really great free tutorials online!!!*

For example, the main powerful feature I wanted to really master was 'Expressions', which this book barely touches upon. Instead, and rather annoyingly, it simply directs you to AE's in built Help, which isn't exactly the advice you want after paying money for help.

So, be warned, if you want a simple introduction to get up to a comfortable understanding of AE, and then explore by yourself, go ahead and get this book. If you want a bit more, I would consider some of the beefier ones like "AE Apprentice", perhaps.
