I highly recommend that anybody who buys logic pro 9 buys this book concurrently. I got the book months after getting logic, and figured out how to do the basics from the manual, youtube vids and forums. When i received the book, i was expecting to be able to flip through it and cherry pick little tidbits i wanted to bone up on. After a few minutes with the book, i decided to just go through the chapters as intended - what could it hurt?

Well, i am supremely glad i did. The accompanying media is great for getting your hands dirty, the methodology is perfect, and it is an entertaining process and very rewarding. Just by going through the exercises, commands have become second nature. A task that took me an hour now takes me 10 minutes. I was exposed to plenty of stuff i didnt know i wanted to know, and now i cant stop boldy experimenting with these new concepts, which is just plain fun.

I cant recommend this book highly enough. Upon completion of this book, you will absolutely be comfortable using Logic 9.

am a long-time logic user, but needed to go back to basics (plus hey, there's a lot i don't really know).
waited a while for this to come out, got it 2 days ago, and...perfect.
detailed, clear, concise; everything such a book should be.
and the audiofiles included make this a true hands-on experience (for me, better than just reading stuff).

recommended to anyone using logic 9.

Nahmani guides you step by step so you learn using Logic almost efortlessly.

The main reason why I think this book is great is a decent collection of examps provided by Nahmani.
Even if you consider yourself familiar with Logic this book is useful because you can always learn a nifty tip, shortcut or a feature you didn' know before.

Anyway, it was a no-brainer for me, since I haven't used Logic Pro before.
Nahmani helped me immensly.

I've been a Logic User since "the beginning" on my Atari ST, and I've reviewed the various iterations of this book over time since Apple bought the company from Emagic, Logic's initial German developer. As I've seen authorship of this book change with the version changes of the program, I've seen absolutely no drop off in the quality that initially led me to give Sitter's version of the training program (for version 6 or 7..can't remember which I reviewed off the top of my head) a glowing 5 star review. I make it a point to go through each page and every tutorial for each and every review I write, and while there are a few more typographical errors than I've seen before, and some differences in some keystrokes/menu choices later in the book that must've changed later in the "shipping version" of Logic 9, there is little to complain about here, except to wish for more! Each and every chapter gives one a VERY practical lesson in Logic's use that can benefit one's music production immediately. The book does a great job accenting the new features of Logic 9 while still covering all of the basic navigation (although I missed seeing chapters on setting up the workspace, environment, and setting up screensets---these were in the older books) and properties of the "core" program.

And, DON'T skip out on this even if you're an experienced Logic user. Logic 9 is different enough and comes with enough new features to warrant spending a few hours with this book. While online video lessons seem to be all the rage (and I do find them useful on occasion), I still learn much better and more actively with book in hand and using interactive files. This format simply is the best method there is, and this goes for all of Apple's "official" certification series books.

I recently switched to Mac and started using Logic Pro 9 as my primary DAW. I had many frustrating moments trying to achieve the effective workflows I was used to from before. This book was my savior.

For a good overview of the contents, I recommend using the 'Look Inside' feature (click on the product image), the table of contents (beginning on page vi) is quite descriptive.

I would love it if every text book were as clearly structured as this one. Each lesson begins with an overview of which project files (included on a CD with the book) you will be using, how long the lesson will approximately take, and what skills you will learn. Then there's a short introduction giving you some background info and showing why the skills you are about to learn are important (this last point is crucial to preparing your brain to take in the information that follows). The chapters go on with step by step instructions. Here, as well, the author first explains what you will achieve, then takes you through it. This helps you put everything into context, or, if you're confident enough, you can skip the individual steps and see if you can achieve the goal by yourself. At the end of every chapter are test questions reviewing the most important aspects of each lesson.
There's an abundance of screenshots (in color!) that help you make sure you're doing the correct things. I just finished the book, and I was never ever lost in its course.
This guy knows his didactics!

What really made this book fun is this: Many lessons are based on project files of high quality songs (e.g. Mitral Valve Prolapse by Joe Hedges). And these lessons let you do something important within the arrangement of these songs.
