"In such a relatively short book as compared to the 800 page tomes I usually find, there is not much that Rick Young does not cover in order to get the new user up and running as soon and as painlessly as possible…what really sets this book apart is how Rick Young's step-by-step directions and graphics are so very easy to follow." --Steve Douglas, videographer
