    I have always appreciated that InDesign was a program that was more than the sum its parts. Until now there really hasn’t been much in the way of reference information that avoids extensive background context. While I personally am a fan of all the context I can absorb, having a “go-to” guide that tells me what I want to know — when I want to know it — is invaluable. That is especially important when using InDesign. You’re always using the program against a deadline. There are so many pieces that need to mesh, and if you don’t use it every day, you will likely forget an important part. So thank you Dave Clayton for taking on the challenge of writing this book. I can open it to any page for fun or for intention, but either way way I will learn or refresh my memory, and make deadlines in the process.

    A handy book to keep by your computer while working on Indesign. A quick reference guide full of tips and tricks. Even after years of using Indesign I still find this book great to refer to on areas not familiar with.. A worthwhile book to have.

  3. I bought this on Scott Kelby’s recommendation. What reduced the stars is its publishing flaws. The screen shots were too small and dark. Commitment to single page tips sacrificed clarity, comfort, and utility. There is enough white space on a page for a magnified circle containing selected menus, which it badly needs. Within minutes, my eye muscles felt like overly stretched rubber bands. Within 15 minutes, eyestrain led to a headache. I recommend buyers wait for the publisher to correct its flawed printing so the author’s work can shine.
