Format: Paperback
There are some good ideas included in the book, but it is far too lengthy. Any professional should find most of the notions common sense, and of little use.

I may have gotten something out of it if it were half the length, much more focused, and a little more detailed. Throw in some case studies of actual cause-effect examples, and it would have grabbed my attention.

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Gócza Zoltán Károly on October 10, 2009
Format: Paperback
Expect a very detailed and systematical book about how to think modular when designing for the web and how to create component-based designs, deliverables (wireframes, layouts, specs). The book is packed with practical tips on how to achieve modularity in common design tools (InDesign, Fireworks, Visio, etc.).

What I liked about the book:
- It's down to earth, very well structured.
- The fundamental approach is very inspiring: how to cut a design into pieces, document the pieces, search for reusable elements and define those as components.
- Examples and figures are abundant and illustrate the points very well.

What you should be aware of:
- If you're mainly working for on small to mid-sized projects or you're not really decided to go and start creating and sharing component libraries, the detailed process in the 2nd part of the book may be really overkill for you.

Format: Paperback
Ever wondered if you are creating wireframes, comps, technical requirements, etc. as quickly as you could?
Looking for some tips that will take your design deliverables to the next level?
Have customers ever looked at your deliverables and said, "Huh? Where are you referring?"

Then Modular Web Design is worth buying and reading.

I confess that I can be a bit lazy. I'm also extremely swamped. I want to make engaging, easily understood deliverables as quickly as possible and this book has helped me review my current body of work and enhance it. It's given me some new ways to think about how I create great deliverables and leverage existing work.
