Great book. Wonderful discussion of craft

Great book. Wonderful discussion of craft. At this point some of the technical stuff is very outdated since most of the industry has moved from cutting on film to cutting digitally, but the discussions of craft are excellent.

Great editing knowledge. Worth 10 times the price. Mostly about the Hollywood system, but there is New York editing. Done.
