Overall I think this book is an overpriced piece of fluff and your money is better spent elsewhere to improve your design aesthetic.
And the font the entire thing is set in is just ridiculous. I know we're all really jazzed about the Tron sequel and all, but was this typographic homage to 80's era futurism really necessary?
Worth a look, but borrow someone else's copy if you can.
Overall it is a good overview that I enjoyed reading and learned from.
Read my full review and view a short "flip-through" video on the Web Designers' Review of Books.
Verdict: if you have never even heard about the grid principles for web design and happen to have more money than you know what to do with, you may find a few nuggets of useful information. (You'll still get bored to tears with the rest of the book.) if you are looking to deepen your knowledge, your best bet is to look elsewhere.
The part where this book excels most, is in laying out in detail how the 960 Grid system actually works. How it's built (or can be built) and why it's a lifesaver, for web developers like me, who (unfortunately) didn't take Graphic Design as a subject in Uni( Btw at least some level of Graphic Design or Layout design should be a part of every web development course). And that's why Khoi was sent on this planet, so that web devs like me do not wander in darkness when it came to web design.
Great work Khoi.
