This book is an excellent choice for anyone - beginner to advanced users of InDesign. I started using InDesign when the first CS came out and I learned plenty from this book. Excellent choice for the price.
The book is okay. However, you can get the same information from pretty much any basic Indesign primer. I'm a fan of the Deke books, and I would not recommend this book as a primer.The nice thing about this book, though, is how it indexes each technique. It makes a handy reference manual. For that function, it's just fine.If you need an instruction manual, buy one. If you need a reference manual, buy this.
When I bought this book I still had the CS3 Design Suite, however, that being said, this book is PACKED with solid information on how to perform the tasks needed to produce a print ready document or book. I highly recommend this or the latest CS Suite one.
An excellent resource! A must have if you use InDesign! I recommended that all my students purchase a copy.
