While this is a well written book filled with lots of beautiful work it does lack the in depth look at any of the topics covered in the second and third chapter which deal with the elements of art and the principles of design. However, it does, as the author states in the beginning of the book give you a basic foundation from which to work forward from.
Full color photographs and the authors easy conversational tone make it an easy enjoyable read.
I also found the squeaky spiral binding to be irritating, and the design of the book in general (splashy borders, colored boxes of text, many font changes) as well, but that is a personal perferencevand would not be a deal breaker if the content had been what I was expecting.
