This book is perfect for those of us without any graphic design background or education who need to create professional-looking publications. Great examples and visuals throughout the book solidify the points being made at the moment they are being made. The author is straightforward and challenges readers to get out of their comfort zone to create really phenomenal work.

This book was recommended and I was quite excited that I could get it for my NookColor. But it uses graphics to illustrate font combinations and illustrations of good layout - unfortunately the graphics are not crisp - they do not display well on the Nook Color. This is an example of why there is a 14-day trial period, and why I should have used it instead of going ahead and purchasing the book immediately. Also, it is a very short book - only 115 pages. The content is good but not worth the price for little content and poor graphics.

This is a great book! It is so simply and easy to follow. It incorporates many visual examples which makes it easier to understand. I highly recommend it for both teachers and students.
