The book starts logically at the very beginning with advice on how to shop for camera equipment but if you purchase this book to learn Premiere Pro, have no fear, this book will teach you the basics and more in a painless fashion. You will be much better with Premiere Pro in a shorter time than the majority of users out there relying on their own native computer skills and the Adobe manual and help files.
Jeff Sengstack is simply an excellent writer and the cost of this book is minor compared to the time it will save you in learning how to use Premiere Pro.
I eventually bought the Premiere Pro CS4 Classroom in a book, which I found lucid and sufficiently up to date for my purposes.
I do like the fact that the booth spends much of the first lessons on how to create a video from the story telling point of view. The sections from various other people I found to be very insightful.
Then Adobe brought out Premiere Pro which was almost a totally new software comparatively with many of the 6.5 actions done differently. I didn't waste my money on the other books and went straight to this one on Premiere Pro - wasn't disappointed as it gets into a complete project, from concept to DVD and all the steps in between. It even devotes a chapter to Adobe Encore, Audition, and After Effects which comes with Adobe's Video Collection package.
First class publication, reasonably prices, no need for color pics and CD instructions as it takes you through the process of making your own production from day one. Highly recommended for novices in video making, or those upgrading from Premiere 6.5.
