This is the only interactive multi-touch eBook available for the application GarageBand 11 v6.05

"GarageBand 11 - How It Works" from the GEM series (Graphically Enhanced Manuals) explains Apple's popular music production application "GarageBand" with rich illustrations and diagrams that are not found in any other manual. This 336 pages interactive Multi-Touch eBook (with an extensive Glossary) presents this software application in great detail with that easy to understand, visual approach known from other books from the best-selling GEM series.

"I wish all the manuals on software were like yours!" - Giovanni C.
"You have the gift of making difficult concepts understandable" - William B.
"Your style is the most informative and clear I have ever seen" - Mark D.
"Great stuff Edgar! I bought your other Logic GEM books and love em..." - fform
"Thank you so much for your fantastic guides; I've learned so much!" - Brandon B.
"I love your manuals."  - Eli. 


That is the motto of the book series "Graphically Enhanced Manuals" (GEM). They're a new type of manual with a visual approach that helps you UNDERSTAND a program, not just LEARN it. No need to read through 500 of pages of dry text explanations. Rich graphics and diagrams help you to get that "aha" effect and make it easy to comprehend difficult concepts. The Graphically Enhanced Manuals help you master a program much faster with a much deeper understanding of concepts, features and workflows in a very intuitive way that is easy to understand.


  • Like it a lot

    This is the best manual for GarageBand I have seen.
  • Love it

    By gustavoMMM
    I got both GarageBand books from this author and they are great. I have the feeling that I know everything there is for GarageBand and even better that I understand it all. These are real jewels of manuals. I like the graphics and the interactivity. So much better than an old fashioned book with pure text and an occasional screenshot. Really a pure GEM.
  • Covers everything

    By wndyAL
    great book, love the extensive glossary, teaches a lot. If it had a few more onscreen video demonstrations then it would earn my 5 stars, now it is only 4 1/2
  • SUper book

  • Excellent !!!

    This is the best manual I've seen and I have a few! Explains everything in detail so even the absolute beginner will know how everything works. Even the advanced user will get quite some milage out of it. I also have the book for the GarageBand iPad app and it is as good as this one. Excellent explanations and many many graphics showing how things work.
  • Best GarageBand Manual

    By RichardPr
    This is the best manual for GarageBand that I have seen. It covers really everything. Super easy to read with tons of graphics that makes the material very clear. There is even some recording background information to explain where some terminology and workflows are coming from. I also got the other GarageBand manual from the same author "GarageBand for iPad - How it Works", same style, lots of easy to understand illustrations. Highly recommended!
