"Pro Tools | First 12 - How It Works" is not only the first manual available for Avid's "Pro Tools | First" application, it is the most comprehensive one and simply the best way to learn Pro Tools. Now it is the first Pro Tools manual available as interactive multi-touch eBook.
The book is not just a quick introduction, it covers all the features of Pro Tools | First in great details. Because Pro Tools | First contains about 80% of the features and functionality of the standard Pro Tools app, you can also use it to start learning the Standard or HD version of Pro Tools.
On 929 pages, the author explains the app in great detail with additional background information that is often required to fully understand specific features. Many of the information regarding the functionality of Pro Tools is found neither in the official documentation nor anywhere else.
"Pro Tools | First 12 - How It Works" is not only the first (and only) book for the free version of Pro Tools, it is also the first book for version 12 of Pro Tools.

Best Quality, as usual
I mainly use Logic Pro X, but my bandmembers are on Pro Tools. I picked up the free PT version and because I used the Logic books from "Graphically Enhanced Manuals” before, there was no hesitation to get the Pro Tools book from this author to learn Pro Tools.
After two weeks with this amazin book, I can say I know more about Pro Tools than my buddies in my band and they use that app for years.
Great Book - Highly recommend it
My teacher in audio production class recommended this book and now I know why. It is much better than the official course material or other Pro Tools books. THey all list the same clicks and procedure but don’t bother to actually explain the stuff around it.
WIth the help of this book, I now have a much better understanding of Pro Tools
I like it a lot
This book is pretty good, actually really good, like the other ones I have from this series. I just learn much better with this visual elements.
