Format: Paperback
Ok, full disclosure; I am a seasoned vet with Premiere and was reviewing this book for a User Group that I run in Kansas City. After going cover to cover I can confidently say this book is HIGHLY recommended.

The Classroom in Book series is fantastic for taking people with no knowledge of the subject matter and getting them up and running in one quick read. I love the format of the Classroom in a Book series as they start each chapter with what you can expect to learn and approximately how long it will take. The steps are napoleon corporal clear and at the end there is a short non-intimidating quiz to review. Classroom... in a book.

As a seasoned vet that uses Premiere on a daily bases if I can pick up one or two shortcuts from a book/class/tutorial it is normally worth it as I'll reuse that a thousand times over in a year's time. I must have picked up a dozen things that had me shaking my head "I cannot believe I didn't know this was in there." Some of it was new stuff for version CS6 but so much of it has me wondering how many years I've missed out.

I use to be of the midset "Let's be honest, NLEs typically are not that different or complex, sure I'll take the Pepsi challenge with Adobe vs anyone but it's a preference." Not anymore. I picked up so many tips, tricks, and shortcuts I actually based my next group around the entire book.

If you are new or switching over from another NLE... this book is for you! If you are a seasoned vet, you will find that it's a FAST read with some fluff content (designed for the beginner) and I bet at the end you will be wanting more, maybe a Classroom in a book part II for the pros ;) Great book.

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I've recently received the Kindle edition of the book, so I've not had time to fully read the book. Therefore, this review is based solely on my thoughts about the Kindle presentation of the material, and not the material itself. My goal is to help people decide whether to purchase the Kindle or the paperback book, not whether the book itself rates 4 stars.

First, the lack of a physical DVD that accompanies the paperback is not a problem. Inside the Kindle version is a link to a website to download about 5 gigs worth of media/project files. If you've got a broadband connection and an hour or two to wait, you're covered.

Regarding the layout of the content, it works pretty well using a larger second monitor to display the pages while you perform the included lessons. (I use a 24-inch LCD at work.) Most of the screen captures are large enough to read easily. However, there a few figures in the book that are too small to read on a standard kindle. I wish the images included in the kindle version were a little higher quality. You don't notice it often, but when you look closely to view smaller images, you can see .jpg 'mosquito noise' compression that makes it harder to read. Fortunately, these problem images are pretty rare.

The color reproduction on a monitor is good. Viewing the book on a standard size kindle, in greyscale and at a much smaller size, things get more difficult. The text of the book, and the larger images are fine, but smaller, more detailed images (like complete-screen captures) are hard to view at times.

Given that at least 95% of the images in the book are easy to read (at least on a 20+ inch monitor), and almost all of the really crucial images are scaled up enough to read, I am not really disappointed.

Format: Paperback
For Premiere Pro (Pr) CS6, Adobe introduced a new user interface (UI) and a variety of new keyboard shortcuts. In essence, it feel like a very new product. Earlier this year we had to go back to a Pr CS5.5 project and had forgotten how much Pr CS6 changed everything in a most wonderful way.

Adobe Press made a big change to "Adobe Premiere Pro CS6 Classroom in a Book" (CIB) from their CS5 edition. The new writing team of Richard Harrington and Maxim Jago came on board. Richard is a prolific writer. We have quite a few of his books and they never disappoint. In all candor, we come across Richard on various internet forums and Facebook assisting others with image-making projects, but we don't know one and other all that well and not enough to alter our opinion of his writing.

To set the stage, we go back to Premier 1.0 as well as having had a traditional video editing suite, in the days of tape. Admittedly, we had not kept up with all the Premier revisions until CS5. The previous edition assisted us in getting up to speed again as did the excellent video/booklet combination "Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 Learn by Video," which Maxim co-authors.

Generally speaking, the CIB series appeals to beginners and to some degree those professionals who wish to see what's new. This CIB has more of a higher end direction than any others we have found, to date. Since Premiere Pro CS6 has many of the biggest names in Hollywood and broadcasting crossing over to it rather than the latest scaled-down version of Final Cut Pro (FCP), this edition of Pr CIB has to be the most thorough book ever written on the subject.

There isn't a CIB on Encore, Adobe's DVD/Blu-ray authoring app.
