Comprehensive coverage--competition doesn't provide nearly the same depth or detail of multimedia product descriptions as Osborne's title does. Expert author experience--Tay Vaughan's work as a multimedia producer with his company, Timestream, Inc. lends incredible insight to real-world projects. He blends technical material with anecdotal accounts of in-the-trench experiences--making the learning of difficult topics friendly. Added value of CD-ROM--The CD includes trial versions of Macromedia's products--arguably the most popular multimedia creation software. Technical review--feedback from the multimedia chair at Wellesley College helped shape the scope of this book to best serve the interested academic market.
