THE Best Book for AE

I was new to the world of video editing and animation. But thanks to this book, I could successfully master Adobe's AE. This book not only helped me understand the concepts and principles but gave me their ideas and the how and why behind them.
This book is indeed the best book among all the software books that I've read.

Stay away!

I bought this guide with Final Fantasy 9 in the hopes of actually getting help. No luck there. You go through the guide hoping to find the secrets and hidden items to make your game 100% complete. It then tells you to sign-up and give your personal information to a site to get that info. The membership is free ,but I thought the purpose of the guide books were so you didn't have to run to the computer every 5 minutes for help. This guide is a total waste of money. Only get this guide if you are payed to do so.

Great overview and how to get started

Book covers how to start from zero and produce reports. He covers about every angle conceivable from that point.

If you are wanting a book digging into the guts and details of stickier reports then this is probably not the book for you. But, if you are wanting to learn this technology and have no experience then this is the book for you.

Finally, the book I've been looking for!

If you do not want to learn Perl in depth, but just solve every-day problems in a fast, easy and effective way, this is the book for you. The code samples are normally short and always give the answer, you looked for (or at least, a very useful hint). Very interesting are also the introductions to the main chapters.
