   Dear User Group members,

   The excitement just never stops here at "the Pit!" This month we are jazzed
   to release several Final Cut Pro Studio books, including four titles in our
   Apple Pro Training Series, and the first to market!

   We also have some awesome digital photography books to amaze and inspire
   you. Not to be left out, we have a new ActionScript book for game
   development groups and a new JavaScript book for our web design groups.
