This book is broken up into mini sections that focus on quick hitting topics. It does not cover any one topic in depth, but gives you the general "what you need to know" type of information. It also has a few nice "helpful hints" that will help you along in your graphic design career. Overall I was slightly disappointed in this book, as I thought it would be more of a "manual" that leads you step by step through the process of designing from your desktop. I found much of the information to be "obvious" or common knowledge, but there were a few good little nuggets of information that probably made the book worthwhile. All in all I don't see myself keeping this book around as a reference, rather I will remember a few snippets and forget the rest.

This is a good reference book for beginning designers and for graphic designers like myself who always want more information. It covers basic things like Adobe software to web pages and offers tips for best results. It also talks about toning and editing photographs, file differences, typography, color, best website practices, and a lot more. I saw this book at a book store once, thumbed through it, and couldn't get it out of my head so I had to buy it. It is a good book with practical and useful information.

I have purchased many graphic design books over the years and this one is good. It covers all different aspects of design that I have not seen in other books. Some material is a bit dated because it was published several years ago, but much of it is timeless and will be a great help to new designers.

Some of the information is written with the assumption you already know it.

It covers many topics, from basic to advanced, in a logical fashion. It's well-written, concise, gives great visual examples, and will likely serve me well as a reference tool in the future for any "how-do-you-do-that?" moment.

I really like this book. This book will stay close to my computer since it helps to remind me of the designers basics. I would recommend this to everyone who wants to learn design. The book has the basic are right at your fingertips and the best book I have found as a reference to the design basics.

I gave the book a 4 star rating because the book is great for beginners those more advanced will think the book is boring.
