Content is OK, but this latest edition (I've had the earlier ones also) is a step backwards.
The index is poor -- whole subjects are not even shown in the index. Also left out is the page listing the contents of the included DVD. Also missing is any discussion of the New Blue Title Pro that comes with Vegas Pro 11. This is a powerful but complicated plug in that gets only a short superficial mention in the book.
But the biggest problem is that the screen shots continue to be in black and white, which makes it hard to see the detail. Despite this, the sample pages Amazon shows on its website for the book display the screen shots in color. I bought this edition thinking they finally got around to doing color for the screen shots, but it ain't so.
Worse yet, the discussion of color correction and use of scopes has been really screwed up. Previous editions included 16 pages of color shots printed on glossy paper demonstrating the effects of color correction tools and the use of scopes. This edition does it all in black and white. Pretty useless.
I would be happy to pay the $39 for a pdf file of this book with the necessary color included (as shown on Amazon's website) that I could print out myself. I notice that the book is available for the Kindle, but it's not clear if this version includes color screen shots that could be read on the Kindle Fire.
In the meantime, hopefully the publisher will get it right on the next edition.
