Format: Paperback
So when I first cracked this open I was so happy. Just what I wanted after 15 years in graphic design. Just the refresher course/inspirational book I was looking for. The content alone I would have given five stars for but here's the kicker - many sections are set in a very pale 6 or 7 point and the size of type and lack of contrast make this difficult to read. Ah the irony! The main body text is fine but the book is full of sidebars which, while I can read them, I have to make sure the light is good and I have to really concentrate.

Yes I don't have perfect vision anymore but to date I have never needed and don't own reading glasses. This may be the book that sends me to an optometrist but it shouldn't have been!

I find the information is comprehensive and well organized. While others complained about the text being unreadable, I took a chance on the book and I find it quite readable. True the text is not as well defined as it could be, but it is readable.

Very well written, very insightful. Every page of the book is designed to visually translate its contents, therefore it becomes very easy to absorb the informations that are carried out in the book. Real graphic design at work! Loved it!

Excellent livre qui présente différentes techniques graphiques et leur effet sur la personne qui regarde. Pas de pelletage de nuage. Si vous lisez l'anglais, c'est un très bon livre.
