I've been a Cubase user through several generations of the software and had never looked through any books beyond the manuals. This seems to have been the first Cubase 5 book to come out, so I thought I'd buy a book to help me learn some things about the new version.

This book isn't terrible, and some people may like it. It has 17 chapters that cover various areas of Cubase such as Automation, Midi Recording, The Score Editor, and the Mixer. The greater majority of the chapters are less than 10 pages long. Within the chapters you find "tips." They don't seem to be presented in any organized order. The tips are alright. As you would probably guess, if you have used Cubase for awhile, you already know a fair number of the tips, you don't care at all about many of the others, and there are a few that will surprise you. I've learned a few things that I never realized that will prove helpful, but the organization of this book did nothing to help me find them. I do not feel that there weren't enough of these things (for me at least) to really justify the purchase of the book.

The book looks nice. It has lots of screenshots in it. It may be a weird complaint, but it smells horrible. Really unpleasant. I'm serious. I probably should return it just for that. I don't like to keep it nearby because of the smell. I've never had that happen with a book before. The smell has no impact on my rating of the book, but it really is terrible.

There are books out there such as the O'Reilly cookbooks for various computer programming languages that also are a collection of tips, but those books often do it right. Rather than being randomly thrown together tips they present things in a logical order and include little tutorials and explanations to tie everything together.

This is a great book for those of us that don't have the time or patience to read the entire Cubase 5 manual. Some sections might not be applicable to experienced Cubase users, but the book gives good insights into the new features.
