    Everything in one book

    This book not only explains how to use Illustrators tools it ends up being a valuable reference manual.

    I have been using Illustrator for several years so most of the tools are not new to me. I say most because the people at Adobe are always adding new tools and features while enhancing existing ones.

    Some of the new features are a new Perspective Grid tool, enhanced brush strokes, a new Bristle Brush and a Shape Builder tool.

    Like the others in the Classroom in a Book series this one has lessons instead of chapters. On the CD, that comes with the book, each lesson has at least one starting illustration and an image of what the illustration should look like after you complete the lesson. Each lesson is explained step-by-step. Then at the end of the lesson they add their "Exploring on your own" section. Here they challenge you to complete a task by guiding you without the step-by-step instruction. Each lesson ends with review questions along with their answers.

    The thing that makes this book appealing to everybody is that there is something for everybody. From step-by-step instructions for the novice to the "Exploring on your own" section for the more advanced users.

    The thing that I really like about this book is that if you go through all of the lessons you will have had a good introduction to many of the tools that Illustrator has.
