The black and white format allows adult learners to effectively make notes and mark up important items with a red pen.
With a background in graphic design, I appreciate the clean 2 column pages, large and plentiful screen captures and indented step by step instructions. Adequate white space avoids overwhelming visual clutter typical of other books.
A consistent thread of lighthearted reference to the Wizard of Oz in graphic examples keeps you smiling while learning the software.
Sandee Cohen is an expert in InDesign, graphic design, technical writing and teaching this material - a winning combination.
This book is not a book on design. There are many great books on design, many are expensive, and they have great, high resolution, illustrations and photo's. This book is here to show you how to use InDesign. It assumes you already know how to design.
I am an experienced designer and really appreciate the information in this inexpensive book. I use it as a reference on the new features, and to refresh myself on older features I may not use every day.
This Quick Start guide is a very good reference and a great guide to getting started. Just as the title states.
