I like how the author links the human blink with a cut in a film, and how the decision on when you time the cut influences the audience's appreciation of the shot/film. There are a number of good advice and tips for anyone looking to become a better editor. I think editing is an artform that is hard to learn and even harder to teach so his writing is very much appreaciated. However, I feel his thoughts related to equipment and methods of old, present and possible future, while insightful, go a bit too much into detail and subsequently felt draggy to me. Overall it's still a pretty short book so definitely worth a read.
