This review is from: Dynamics in Document Design: Creating Texts for Readers (Wiley Technical Communication Library) (Paperback)
As a graduate student in technical communication, I've been required to use this book as a course text. I can assure you few students referred to it regularly.
As a professional tech writer, I still keep it on the shelf. For a book on document design, this does not appear to be the best example. If you want to scan for the salient points, this book is not for you. The 600 pages are very crowded and, though there is lots of good information in it, you have to do some digging. I wouldn't use this book as my only resource on the subject. If you add this one to your library, consider including books by Roger C. Parker and Robin Williams to complement to this volume.

So if I wanted to buy a book on graphic design relating to documents that was simultaneously complex and comprehensive. What book would you advise?
