This neat little 70+ pages book was a disappointment. Perhaps because I was looking for something else. I am writing this review because I don't want someone to make my mistake. See, I was looking for a book that would be full of colored photos and diagrams; I was looking for pictorial examples and suggestions of "creative" portfolios. I really wanted to SEE the ideas. What I got was black and white, mostly text with a few pages of hand drawn sketches and clip arts. I think it's a pretty good intro to "how to create a portfolio", but it still lacks a lot of information. One thing, it generalizes how a portfolio should be created. It seems to assume to you can get away with having one good portfolio. It never talks about how you should diversify/change your portfolio according to where you are submitting it to--a graphic design firm vs. a publication firm vs. web developing firm vs. newspaper. One of the biggest failure is in its information about submitting a porfolio for grad schools. It talks as if all Grad programs are looking for a certain type of portfolio. It never even told the reader to READ carefully, each school's portfolio requirements. Hmm..I don't recommend this book.
