    Great for those who don't understand computers well

    I am a college student who had to buy this book for my desktop publishing class...let me tell you, this book saved me! It is very thorough with details b/c it goes through everything step by step. It has an index, but the most useful way to use the book is by using the tabs printed on the edge of the book--it's alot faster. The author made the text very readible. I actually enjoyed the book (but don't tell my teacher that).
