I wanted a book that would give me a brief introduction to some of the programs I was not familiar with. I also did not want to spend a ton of money on 8 different books. This is a great basic reference. I find that this book along with Adobe TV found on Adobe's site are a great place to start when learning any product in the Creative Web Suite Premium. If you are experienced with most of the products in CS4 Web addition this is not the book for you.
Adobe OnLocation is a direct-to-disk recording and monitoring software. Adobe Prelude is a tool for importing ingesting , reviewing, and logging tapeless media.
