This is an excellent book, even though Ableton has gone to version 9, live still works in basically the same way. All the illustrations are in colour, and are clearly laid out. The only disappointment was the fact that the Website files needed for some of the exercises, don't appear to exist!
Amazing book! Good for begginers or medium level users (like me) that want to get deeper into ableton. It helped me discover a lot of new things and shortcuts to work on my music. And the way it's written it's quite easy to understand and not boring.
