UNDERSTAND, not just LEARN
That is the motto of the book series "Graphically Enhanced Manuals" (GEM). They're a new type of manual with a visual approach that helps you UNDERSTAND a program, not just LEARN it. No need to read through 500 of pages of dry text explanations. Rich graphics and diagrams help you to get that "aha" effect and make it easy to comprehend difficult concepts. The Graphically Enhanced Manuals help you master a program much faster with a much deeper understanding of concepts, features and workflows in a very intuitive way that is easy to understand
Fantastic Way to Learn the Apple Pro Apps
I already owned 4 of Edgar's graphically enhanced manuals as PDF's, but wow, his reformatting of the guides in the iBooks format is a surprising improvement on an already terrific way to learn the Apple pro apps. I'm hooked and ready for the Compressor 4.1 iBook.
This book will not downoad
No matter what I do. Bought 4 other books at the same time and they all downloaded fine.
Brilliant, Clear, and Memorable!
I've read Edgar's manuals on Final Cut Pro X (How it Works, and the Details), and Compressor, (Twice) and purchased the one for Motion. Put simply, they are brilliant. They are far and away the best manuals I have ever seen. They take complex concepts and make them visual, clear, and memorable. I attempted to read other books, and just couldn't get through them, I read his manuals and it all suddenly became clear. My level was advanced beginner when I approached his manuals, and now I feel I am strong intermediate. The clarity of his thinking, the beauty of his presentation, and intelligence, combined with his ability to sift through the complexity of these concepts to present what is the essence of the topic is unmatched in my experience. Being a computer professional myself for the past 20 years, who has received high praise for my own documentation, I feel qualified to say he is the best I have ever seen. You will quickly master the basics and beyond with these manuals. Sincere gratitude to him.
