This review is from: Apple Pro Training Series: Logic Pro 9 and Logic Express 9 (Paperback)
I'm very impressed with this book. It's exactly what I needed to give me an in-depth overview. I was skeptical at first, because most books go too slowly for me. However, this book gives great lessons step-by-step, teaches some cool tricks about audio processing and music composition in general, and I liked how it provides and encourages the use of keyboard shortcuts whenever possible.
The best part is the CD which has pre-built Logic lesson files and songs. In one lesson, you open a complete song (with about 15 tracks consisting of vocals, drums, guitars, etc), and need to process and change it around. The CD makes this a complete hands-on experience--my preferred way of learning. I'm a software engineer and usually dislike step-by-step books because I think they waste time explaining what I would consider to be obvious points or common sense. This book doesn't waste time and didn't treat me like an idiot.
In response to the two-star rating I read about typos--I only found one typo so far. I also did not find any structural errors regarding the step-by-step instructions. I consider that review to be invalid and poorly-argued.
