Personally, I learned a lot on the forum here, and seeing vids on youtube about Live 9 and Push 2. Furthermore I learned alot from the manual......

All three books look good, but I don'tknow any of the three. Sorry.

Another vote for Jake Perrine's books, especially "Producing Music with Ableton Live 9" and "Sound Design, Mixing, and Mastering with Ableton Live 9". This is how I got my start. Excellent books!!

Been wanting a book as well.

The highly praised Roey Izahki has a new mixing book out on August 23th (according to Amazon)
His previous books are supposed to be good as well. (Not Ableton specific however)

$60 is a lot for a book. But it will be the most modern and up to date book on mixing.

The manual?

I've red it several times over and it's actually well written and easy to follow. I keep it on my phone.

Maybe your after more i depth applicable examples tho.

I was thinking the same thing. To those who recommended the books--what's in them that's missing from the manual?

What's great about Jake Perrine's books is they take you through the entire process of building and mixing a track. At the end of the first book, you have a complete song. By the end of the second book, you've given that song a lot of polish.

The Live manual is great if you have some idea of what you're looking for, or you already understand music production and just need to find the right features in Live. But if you've never made music before, these books will take you step-by-step through the entire process, and teach you a lot of cool tricks along the way.

Oh... and all the samples need to build the song (plus a lot of extras) are included on a disk that comes with the book.
