Adobe InDesign CS/CS2 Breakthroughs Paperback – June 13, 2005
From the Back Cover
Adobe InDesign is taking the publishing world by storm and users are hungry for breakthrough solutions to their myriad concerns—from how best to manage the program's sometimes unwieldy interface to how to produce quality PDF files. Page-layout guru David Blatner and veteran trainer Anne-Marie "HerGeekness" Concepción have scoured the online forums, interviewed Adobe engineers, and gathered together answers to over 200 of the most-commonly asked questions. Written in a sassy, fun-to-read style, this book tackles every major InDesign problem with a lay-it-on-the-line solution. Adobe InDesign CS/CS2 Breakthroughs is for anyone who has been using InDesign long enough to realize that the solution to their problems isn't always as obvious as one would expect.

This book was everything I needed and a lot more. InDesign is a deep program and InDesign CS/CS2 Breakthroughs is a comprehensive, well written and easy to use primer and overview, for beginners and veteran users alike. My copy has become a fixture on my desk (I work designing ads for a newspaper) and all my coworkers find it as instrumental as I do. The book also functions wonderfully as a bridge for people migrating from Quark to InDesign. Ms. Concepcion and Mr. Blatner have created a perfect tool! Bravo!
This book will not teach you how to use Indesign. It is not for beginners. For those of you that use Indesign a great deal and always wished you knew how to do some certain function or trick this book is for you. It is full of workarounds for many everyday problems that you will encounter. I am just so amazed how helpful this book has been to me that I wanted to share it with everyone here.
This is not some 800 page Indesign Bible. It is a small quick read that lists problems that Indesign users face everyday and how to solve them. I have worked with Indesign for many years and this book has been more useful than all my other books combined.
I just started reading through bits and pieces of it (since it was just published a few weeks ago - hot off the press), and I can see it will be something I'll be keeping near my computer during projects I do in InDesign.
