"iLife '04: The Missing Manual": The Guide to Livin' the iLife
Sebastopol, CA--You shouldn't have to be a professional working for a media conglomerate to harness cutting-edge technology for your own creative expression and entertainment. That's Apple's philosophy behind the iLife '04 software suite, reports David Pogue, author of the new iLife '04: The Missing Manual (O'Reilly/Pogue Press, US $29.95). "Each of the five programs in this $50 package is a streamlined, attractive, easy-to-use version of software that was once hopelessly complex--or hopelessly expensive," says Pogue.
iLife may be simple, but it's not at all simplistic; many a user has been disappointed to find iLife's electronic help screens painfully sparse and its manual nonexistent...until now.
"iLife '04: The Missing Manual"--the book that should have been in the box--fills the information gap by exploring each iLife program in depth, offering invaluable shortcuts and workarounds, and unearthing countless features that the online help doesn't even mention. It gives readers everything they need to unleash their creative genius with the suite of programs (available at the Apple store and preinstalled on all new Macs) that is revolutionizing the way people work and play.
Pogue, columnist for The New York Times and creator of O'Reilly's ever-popular Missing Manual series, makes sure there's nothing standing between his readers and professional-caliber music, photos, and movies. His authoritative, witty, all-inclusive "iLife '04: The Missing Manual" covers all five programs:
Pogue highlights the newest features and improvements of iLife '04, covers the capabilities and limitations of each program within the suite, and delivers countless goodies not found anywhere else: undocumented tips, tricks, and secrets for getting the very best performance out of every one of iLife's life-changing new applications.
