Each of the books ($45) in the new series focuses on one of Apple’s powerhouse digital audio or video apps: Final Cut Express, Final Cut Pro, DVD Studio Pro, Logic, and Shake.

Each chapter of these guides represents a complete lesson in some aspect of the software covered: with a project to complete, a review section, and exercises to reinforce the lessons. An accompanying DVD includes lesson files and, for select titles, free trial versions of the software under discussion.
