Perfect for beginners and intermediates alike,
This review is from: Apple Training Series: iLife 06 (Paperback)Some of the other reviews have dinged this book because of its "beginner" nature, but this is precisely why you are using a training book for beginner to intermediate type software. If you knew how to use the software already, why would you need a book? No program in iLife '06 is professional quality, it was never meant to be.
The iLife suite of products was developed to be user friendly while at the same time making attractive projects. The developers have achieved this quality beautifully, and that is why we have all paid a premium to own a MAC.
As an intermediate user of the iLife programs, I have done projects on my own and with the help of books (I have both Jim Heid's book and Rubin's book). And for my money, Rubin's book is easier to use and more logically set-up. I found myself wanting more information with Heid's book, but have found that all of the information I need is included in Rubin's book. Both books are visually very attractive, but I have...

This review is from: Apple Training Series: iLife 06 (Paperback)Logically and spaciously designed, well-written and conceived, ilife 06 is the perfect beginner's introduction to creative tools. It allows someone who has net zero experience in visual, audio, or web processing to put something together on the web in a matter of days. The reason ilife 06 is so good is that it limits itself to instructing true beginners and never tries to be an all-in-one manual. Of course that's also the book's downside: it will only take you through the software's most basic uses, even though the ilife suite is a much deeper set of applications. Result: eventually you'll need another instructional guide, but untill then, this is the best start-up on the market.

Re other comment,
This review is from: Apple Training Series: iLife 06 (Paperback)At first I was going to ask if the first review was done by a rep for the other book since it's not even set to be released for another ten days but I noticed that you didn't get the author's name right so I'll just leave it at that.
I have to agree that this book is pretty basic. I pre-ordered and waited almost two months to receive it in the mail and, well, not to say that it wasn't useful but the programs are simple and intuitive enough that it was easier to get through the projects by trial and error.
