At first glance I wasn't sure about this book. Since it's only 190 pages - short compared to some - and has a bright, colourful design, I expected one of those style-over-very-little-content numbers. Wrong on both counts. It's packed with useful info and tips - I've been using ID for some time, but found better and faster ways to do a couple of things the first day I had it on the desk. And after a month I have yet to catch it out on missing content - everything I've wanted info on has been there, and well-indexed too. The examples and illustrations are very clear and always pertinent, again, something I wouldn't say about the majority of manuals. By far the best I've seen of its type since Rick Altman's Corel books over ten years ago!
