"I know a lot about QuickTime, but Tim Monroe seems to know more: little nuggets of information that can be very valuable in the futureâthings you didn't even know you didn't know. I wish I had this book when I was just starting out working with QuickTime. It would have saved me a lot of time trying to figure things out on my own." âSteve Israelson, VP Technology, TotallyHip Inc.

He has a uniquely proactive creative/logical approach demonstrating the great possibilities in a great technology." âBill Meikle programmer, vrhotwires.com
