I thought that if Im going buy a book on indesign why not get the one written by people who created the program. And Im glad I bought it. This book is divided into 14 lessons. Im on my third lesson and I like it so far. I've learned the basics in the first two lessons that took my professor 2 month to show us. It's easy to understand, it explains you what you will learn from the following practice and you just follow the instructions (images provided). I definitely recommend!
