3.0 out of 5 stars
Average introduction, 9 Aug. 2011
Through a lot of tutorial the basics of Scribus is explained. On top of that more advanced features are mentioned when necessary.
Unfortunately the book is very poorly translated, which is confusing, annoying and at times quite amusing.
The concept with tutorials and further explanations (in a "What just happened?" section) is good, but many times it does'nt make sense. Thus the "What just happened?" section merely repeats what's all ready been said in the tutorial.This content management seems to be more important for the author, than actually explaining Scribus the most efficient way.
That said, I've learned a lot from reading the book, but for future editions: Sharpen the english and find a concept for the tutorials that makes sense throughout the book.
