Nerd authors versus eager learner 17 Feb. 2014
By William K. Solberg - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I'm new to graphics products like the Weinmann and Lourekas book. I'm also new to illustrator. The book is readable and warrants the overall praise that one instructor made. However, there is one unforgivable drawback in this book that makes it very difficult for the uninformed lone reader-- the lack of explicit definition of terms and a full scale glossary. For example, the index refers me to p.155 for the definition of anchor point, but on that page the definition has gone AWOL. Definition, to me, means more than "corner anchor points have no direction handles, one direction handle, or a pair of direction handles ." A complicated product like Illustrator CC deserves more than a linear recipe book of show and tell. It should offer the reader a way to understand the terms as to their function without ambiguity. I would look for a another book with a meaningful glossary.

Excellent reference for Illustrator 22 Sept. 2013
By L. Ruhlin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I"m an Adobe Certified instructor for Illustrator and I've been using this book for many years. The information provided is correct and informative, with a great index. I would recommend this for anyone struggling with Illustrator, when you want to just know what to click on and where it is!

This book is a textbook for my MFA in Jewelry and Metal Arts. I've never used illustrator, but these step-by-step tutorials and guidelines are great for visual learners.
Very Helpful for One New to Ilustrator 5 April 2015
By ghost - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am new to Illustrator so everything is a mystery to me. I tried reading this book from the very start to patiently work my way through it but found I had too many questions right away to wait for the book's answers in the middle or end. One example was how to work with pdf images in Illustrator. So, in the end, I've been skipping around to various places in the book to get snatches of the answers I need to do the things I want to do at that moment and, in this regard, the book is very helpful and clearly written. It is starting to gel for me after about a week of intense work at computer in Illustrator using this book supplemented by many, many YouTube lessons on specific topics. It would be helpful to better understand, at the outset, that Illustrator may not offer full functionality for graphics work i.e. some things that Illustrator can NOT do which can be done by, for instance, Photoshop and how to use the various other Creative Cloud offerings by Adobe to supplement work in Illustrator.
they would have done much better to break the chapters up into discrete lessons 22 Mar. 2015
By Yonatan - Published on Amazon.com

While this book is very comprehensive, Illustrator is very complex and wide ranging. To me, they would have done much better to break the chapters up into discrete lessons. I have also been a Corel Draw person, and the switch to Illustrator is very hard. I still continue to use Corel as it is much more intuitive and easier to use, although not as deep as Adobe. I am still very confused by Illustrator as I try to go through this book.
