3.0 out of 5 stars Another brilliant read but some issues., 15 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Know Your Onions Web Design: Jet Propel Yourself into the Driving Seat of a Top-Class Web Designer and Hurtle towards Creative Stardom (Paperback)
Having read the Graphic Design edition of this series some time ago, I looked forward to this for some time.
Its another great read. Solid amounts of knowledge but in an incredibly approachable way due to the some of the tongue and cheek style writing. Couldn't recommend it highly enough.

The only problem I have is that, having read the Graphic Design version i noticed a large amount of it has been copy and pasted. A joke is even made about it one point in a section. Thats fair enough for one section that applies to both areas. But later in the book I noticed more and more parts that were absolute copies of the text from previous book down to the same jokes...

Sorry to hear this. There are some techniques and practices that apply to web design as they do to graphic design. In fact you could argue any form of design service. Namely, with the Know Your Onions range, these are File Management, Creative Equation and Project Management. These subjects are repeated, and I say that in the book they have been rewritten for their specific disciplines.

Whilst I'm over the moon some people have bought both titles, I do have to cater for these that have not.

The sections in question, as I say, have original content and are a small section in the book, I think seven pages. In my view they are vital and perhaps some of the best advise I could offer anyone.

Nonetheless, I appreciate the review and glad you enjoyed it.
