Title: Creating Motion Graphics with After Effects (With CD-ROM)
Publisher: CMP Books
Authors: Trish Meyer, Chris Meyer
Rating: 4/5
Customer opinion - 4 stars out of 5
Really good book ... Bad call on including only v4.1 files

These two have a lot of information for anyone interested extending their knowledge in DV. I've talked with Trish via email, and that lady is great! She has so much to offer and so does Chris. It is sad that the format is 4.1 but you don't learn anything by opening up someone else's work. DV and anything else is learn by doing. After Effects on Windows! The Mac is the only way to go for DV, remember Photoshop and many of the Adobe products were written for Macintosh and then eventually written for Windows. It doesnt cost $30,000 dollars to get a system going. Use this book and the knowledge in it and expand your horizons. A firm 5 stars for this book! Hope they do another book soon!

Jakob is not all he's cracked up to be

HAve you seen this guy's site, useit.com? That says it all concerning his abilities. He loves to see his name and pictures in print, and that is very obvious from checking out his site.

I would not buy his books, nor listen to any of his advise. At best he can offer tips for designing handicapped accesible sites, but that's about it.

CISSP All in one exam guide

I just purchased the CISSP All In One Exam Guide, I think this book has everything you need to know about the CISSP certification. Shon Harris did a very good job explaining the CBK.

Incredibly insightful overview of the meaning of Open Source

I sat down intending to write Steven Weber a fan letter. (I decided to say it to you all instead.) I loved this book. I have 11 other books on open source, I wanted to learn everything I could because it's such a fascinating phenomenon. I thought I might even write about it. Never mind. Nothing I could write could touch this brilliant work. I had to work to read it. His range of subject matter was incredible. He talked computers like a hacker. He talked licenses like a lawyer. He talked economics like a business man. He talked business models like an entrepeneur or Venture capital investor. He told the history of open source like he was one of the voices of the movement. This book tells the whole story. In fields or industries I didn't know well, I had to google some stuff to grasp the entire meaning.He doesn't baby you. But, I loved that. I learned so much, I'm still bubbling with excitement. The book took two or three times longer to read than normal. But, I didn't want it to end. I've read over a hundred books this year. I've written some myself. Until today, I've never written a review. This book showed me how a book should be written. If you are seriously interested in the extraordinary story of open source, buy this book.
