For whom is this book? Really, for very wide auditory of InDesign users. I can recommend this books to people who consider themselves as beginners or advanced users of this program. This books will be also helpful to any designer making the switch from QuarkXpress to InDesign. Using the side-by-side comparison of features is much faster than trying to find the answers online, because in order to look up how to do something, you have to know what it's called in InDesign. With this book, you don't.
In fact, Bibles are the most convenient form of explaining of what software does that I've ever seen.
You have all information under your hand in any time of night and day. And users of Microsoft Vista will be very exited as book stays up-to-date. Book is written as for Windows users, as for Macintosh ones.
This Bible will sit next to you all day long. You can read it front to back and use it as a reference during your projects. And this book is worth it if you have or plan to purchase CS3, upgrade to CS3 or want to know more about InDesign CS3.
This book represents an excellent value. You will find anything you wanna in this book: starting from creating frames and using tables, applying color, special effects, working with images, master pages, using grids, and guides, shapes up to small color management course and output fundamentals.
If you just started with InDesign, most likely you not familiar with such terms as "leading", "kerning", "bleeds", "slugs" or other typographical terms mean, but you won't be lost in the jargon any longer. This book will bring you on right level with fine explanations.
End of the book represents summary of what we found out in whole book. Or from other hand maybe it's exactly the place to start read this book for people who just switched from QuarkXPress or PageMaker to InDesign. You can also in once to remember the most usable short cuts that will save you a plenty of time in future (in real there is 10 pages of short cuts but just start from couple and in time you will remember them all).
The most easy way to study yourself smth - just to start. Make some fake project for yourself and how to make it - this book will tell you. And i'm sure that after a couple of projects you will feel yourself almost a pro in InDesign CS3 (previous and versions that will follow, because main part of using program you will already know as 2x2).
I advice you also to pay attention to end of book to chapter number VIII and IX. If you familiar a bit with programming you will see the true value in chapter number X.
So, if you searching for good InDesign CS3 reference, put your finger on this Bible.
P.S. - If you just came from QuarkXpress, i would also recommend you other book of Galen Gruman "QuarkXPress to InDesign: Face to Face"
