"One of the beauties of the Missing Manuals is that there is always something new to discover and the research is quite thorough...I kept finding snippets of information, in the way of Tips or Notes, that would give just that bit extra."
-- Graham K. Rogers, Bangkok Post

"I have reviewed quite a number of Missing Manual books and I am always impressed with them. David Pogue is a Mac master and the depth of his knowledge shines through."
-- Roger Bernau, ACT Apple User Group Incorporated

"iLife '04 is worth adding to your library even if you already have other books on the same topic...if you are looking for a friendly overview of the entire [iLife] suite, this book will be music to your ears."
--MacDirectory, Jan-Mar 2005

"Will somebody please tell me when David Pogue sleeps?...He just cranked out yet another book, this time on Apple's cool iLife '04 creative suite that comes with all Macs. The book is superb, of course."
--Digital Camera, March 2005

"Tips, notes, screenshots and good tutorials provide for solid, in depth learning about each application. There are very specific and important tips in this Manual on all of the applications that I have not seen in other books. These help a great deal in learning and keeping up to date when it comes for using the applications. The manual provides a wealth of knowledge on all the iLife '04 applications for a great price."

"Recently, I purchased an Apple iMac G5....What I really need is a comprehensive printed manual. Thankfully, I'm not alone. David Pogue along with the good folks at O'Reilly have published iLife '04, The Missing Manual. It is everything I need and more...The best thing about this book, is that it has clearly been written by a user of the software...Pogue also includes workarounds for features you might not even know were missing...You might not think of these workarounds yourself and that makes this missing manual a must-have...Whether you are a new Mac user like me or a seasoned veteran of the platform and its software, iLife '04 The Missing Manual will have something to offer. For more reasons than just having the comfort of a well written and well organized book at your side, I highly recommend that you pick up a copy."

"Now, iLife '04: The Missing Manual could contain the most helpful information known to humankind, but it wouldn't matter if weren't easily accessible. No worries about that here. iLife '04 is written and laid out in a way that makes it both easy to read from start to finish or to find only the information you need. The table of contents is easily navigable, but, more importantly, the index is quite thorough, and the categorization of items is quite intuitive. In other words, you don't need to first become an expert on the programs in order to find what you need."
