Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Peachpit's "Visual Quickstart Guides" is an excellent series focusing on highly visual software for both Macintosh and Windows. Uses for the software range from 3-D modeling with Ray Dream, to paper-page layout with QuarkXpress, to web design with GoLive and NetObjects. The approach is excellent for both self-learning and classroom work. The editors match great illustrations with total concentration on accomplishing very specific tasks and a minimum of extraneous discussion. My students love this series because the books are much less long-winded than I am.
