This book is great whether you're brand new to Adobe Indesign or have some basic knowledge. The exercises are clear and Deke provides all sorts of useful tips. The layout is attractive and easy to follow (no surprise there - the man is a designer after all). I particularly liked the fact that some elements of printing jargon and design are explained which gives one a better overall view and understanding of the process. What's more, there is a fun streak running through the book, with touches of humour which keep it from becoming too dry. I've also ordered the Photoshop One-on-One. I highly recommend both.
