Thank you, thank you, thank you for this book. It’s the best $20 spent on user guide ever! We bought an iMac in 2004 and started playing with iMovie right away and loved it. The kids made several great vacation movies, school projects, etc. And then, with each successive release of the app we got so confused and disullusioned about changing interfaces, structures, tools, messy updates etc, that we essentially haven’t touched it in 5 years. Of course our projects and libraries are so out-of-date, many can't be updated/reopened at all - but thanks to this book, at least we want to get active with the app again and try to salvage what we can and start making some new family memories. It’s so well written….I’m only 1/3 of the way in, but love it!!! It helps that iMovie 10 seems to be much more logical in its design now too - so a win all the way around.
