Although I am usually not a big fan of the Visual Quick Start series I really like this one. Mr. Alspach certainly knows what he is writing about. Written in a clear, pleasant way without the unnecessary stupid jokes you encounter far too much in computer books these days. Great coverage of all the basic and intermediate Pagemaker stuff. Good as a study book and very good as a reference book. If you are a beginning or intermediate Pagemaker user needing a book to support you when you are using Pagemaker, buy this one.
If you buy this one and Pagemaker 7: Classroom in a book, you have the perfect combination to learn how to use Pagemaker.
