I will always have this book handy. So resourceful and easy to take in, all the great tips and guides in "Getting it Right with Type" made it everything I was looking for in a book about typography. I'm a fourth year advertising student and this book has truly made an impact on my design. I would recommend this to any student or young professional out there. Even if you think you know great typography, get this book. It's a great reference, if nothing else.

A not-overly-technical, but complete book, an important to guide self-publishers on how to understand and produce books that sell. Too many self-publishers fail to realize the value of book design and lay-out--where and how print is placed on book pages. The right type, page design and ink add to a books appeal to buyers.

Hundreds of types exist. Choosing the right one enhances legibility and enjoyment for book buyers.

An excellent book. Novice writers need to especially understand the concepts in this book.

Review title says it all: text set in light blue or khaki as a tint: awkward readability color, coupled with too-small text leaving book difficult to read. Used as a textbook, everyone in class- ages 19 through 65 all complain of same issue.
Very informative, however. Needs to have layout changed to accommodate successful learning.
