Pros:
I am so appreciative of this book. I have waited quite a while for this to be made available. I have owned Toonboom Harmony for a year now and for the most part I have had to rely on the application User Guide and video tutorials. But this book has more of a personal feel to it.

It is an excellent resource,a monster when it comes to how much tips and tricks is crammed in, and holds you by the hand with wit and humor, guiding the path for first starters to teach Toonboom features fast. This book is not a complete "how to" for animation unfortunately. There are many...Read more
