Perfect when you need the basics quick. 30 Mar. 2000
By Susanna Hutcheson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you apply for a newspaper job or just about any job as a writer or much else, you need to know Quark. And, if you're like me, you can't just jump in over your head! That's where this book can save your skin.
If you need the basics fast, this book is for you. You can build on the knowledge you get in this book. But this is the place to begin.
In addition, sometimes you just need one bit of information. Again, this book is the place to search and find it quickly.
I highly recommend it.

Best book I ever bought! 9 Jan. 2001
By Coffee Snob - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I had always wanted to learn design but had no time or money to invest in classes etc. All I had was an iMac and "Teach yourself Quark Express". Although some reviews don't praise this book, I found it to be informative enough to learn my way around the Quark interface and start designing pages. Because large manuals overwhelmed me- not to mention my optimism about breaking into design was not that high, I settled for this cheap little book. Well I'm happy to say that within about six weeks I landed my first design job in NYC and have since mastered Quark and became very skilled in Photoshop and Illustrator. Just 11 months after reading this book I am now a very experienced and employable designer. I have taken many courses in design since then-but my gratitude goes to the author of "Teach Yourself QuarkXPress"- I never could have done it without this book. I'd like to see the great works of art from those "negative" people who suggest "Quark for Dummies". This is the only Quark book I've ever owned and believe me, anything a certified Quark instructor has ever showed me I had already learned in this book. Maybe the "Dummies" should read it again. This is a real review from a real designer.

Too Small Even For a Doorstop 16 Jun. 2000
By C. Fein - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
While this book does contain some information which may be useful to, say, comatose goats trying to break into a career in desktop publishing, this book provides no easy way of accessing it. The index and glossary are woefully useless and the book is disorganized and nauseatingly simplistic. If one of your coffee table's legs is a little bit too high, this book may just be perfect for you. For those of you with un-wobbly coffee tables, I suggest the Quark for dummies book. It is a crying shame that one star is the lowest possible rating allowed. I hope I have been successful in dissuading you from purchasing this book, you'll thank me later.
