The book is written from a Mac-centric, interactive GUI viewpoint. Unlike some Mac-centric books, this one gives Windows apps a fair shake. Even better it covers free, open-source software that runs on multiple platforms, and are staples for the Linux user. It even covers the powerful MPlayer/MEncoder software.
This is a good, no-nonsense book that's full of useful how and why information. My only criticism is that the space taken up by the step-by-step directions for using specific software could have been put to better use. I didn't find the interviews all that helpful either. It's not perfect, but it's very good.
