Suddenly all Amazon's Adobe prices are at list level. This is available at BN for $23, at Buy.com for $20.
Be sure to shop around.

This was a great buy! I've recently switched from Quark to InDesign (with no official training!) and this book helped a lot. It isn't the most detailed, it's not a bible, but it does deliver the "killer tips" that are so very necessary to working with this program day in & out! Yes, a lot of them are common knowledge, but it was worth the money for the dozen or so that are not to be found anywhere in the help menus, you know the ones that make you giggle as you realize how much time you're gonna save!

If you are a new user or just switching to InDesign - YOU WANT THIS BOOK
If you make your living doing layouts - YOU NEED THIS BOOK
This is a case where haste does not make waste - it saves time and allows you to take on more work.... more work - more money
If you only remember half of the tips in this book you will save loads of time and, better still, save yourself from last minute crunches when a deadline approaches.
BUY THE BOOK.

Format: Paperback
The book has a bunch of tips, roughly 2 per page, like the other books in the series. There's a mix of 3 kinds of tips -- ones that are common to other programs, like Illustrator and Photoshop, ones that are unique to InDesign, but either fairly obvious, or just uninteresting, and ones that are unique and non-obvious. There are enough of the latter to warrant buying the book, if you want to learn the shortcuts that make you efficient with the program. The CS series of programs no longer come with manuals by default, and the manuals that are available from Adobe by special order are much thinner than in past releases. So we're going to need books like this to reveal the shortcuts, especially those that don't have corresponding menu items!
Note, however, that the current price Amazon is listing, $39.99, is off by $10, since the actual retail price of the book is only $29.99.

Buy the book, and spend more time designing not reading! March 9 2005
By Kat Knoll - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I bought this book in a quick fix attempt to learn Indesign 2.0 at the last minute for a 150 page book layout, with cover. I only had very short deadline and no time to read big books. While I was still in the bookstore, it answered a question I had about importing excell documents (which I'd consider worth the cost of the book right there). While developing my layout, I would flip though the book find a great tip and then try it right out.

Much of the book still applied to 2.0. The parts that didn't, really just made me want to upgrade to CS even faster.

I paid full price for the book at Borders and I would do it again. I feel it save me about 10-15 hours worth of work on this one project alone. That's alot of money or free time, depending on how you look at it!

InDesign CS Killer Tips July 12 2007
By M. Ballantyne - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I really like the way Scott Kelby writes. He is clear and anecdotal and funny. This book doesn't substitute for a manual for InDesign and it doesn't pretend to do so. It clarifies a lot of information in manuals.
