Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
I was pleasantly surprised to see that besides the technical info (codecs, limitations, etc), this book also includes some information on how to prepare your assets for blu-ray authoring.
Highly recommended! Probably the best book available to date. I subtracted a star because it could be better organized and it also could get more in depth about the compression codecs. It should be more like 4.5 stars....
The book is informative, though it also leaves out things I would have wanted to know more about.
Mr. Taylor also gives us great ways to explain in a simpler language to a our customers (that do not know about technical stuff) why some things have to be made in a certain way.
This is a book to keep near the workstation for quick reference, since there are various answers for the day to day problems.
Great book in every aspect
