    I want to buy a book/guide for FCP (I'm a beginner) and I'm wondering if anybody has any recommendations?

    I was looking at the Focal Easy Guide, and a couple other titles, but it's hard to tell how useful they are just by flipping through them at the bookstore.

    Thanks! [​IMG]

    Thanks!

    Are there also any books/manuals that would make a good companion to the tutorials?
