    Great teaching tool for beginners & Quark users....

    Comments about oreilly Adobe InDesign CS2 One-on-One:

    thank you for donating this great book!

    it has been a great help to a long term Quark user and beginning In-Design user. The video lessons along with the exercises in the book plus the tests at the end of each chapter make it seem as if you are in class with a teacher. It is a very through system of learning.

    i won the book at an In-Design Users group meeting in Orlando, Florida and did not know what a prize that I had!

    Quark really has to step up to the plate. In-design gives such precise movement to the smallest detail that it is amazing..

    Thank you, Mr. McClelland!!!

    This book is a fabulous "teacher." The video clips followed by the exercises made InDesign more manageable and understandable for me. I do not use InDesign to its fullest and Deke showed how to better utilize the InDesign "power." I won this book as a door prize at the Orlando InDesign Group meeting. I am so glad I attended the meeting because I definitely understand InDesign much better now. Judy Grieve, Orlando FL

    Confident Competent Complete

    Comments about oreilly Adobe InDesign CS2 One-on-One:

    At last I've found a book that I can really learn from. Deke's lessons stick in my mind and I feel I can really engage with real world projects. The demonstrationson the DVD focus your mind for lessons in the book.

    I'm not a pro designer but the book is pitched at the right level and the book reads like a conversation, rather than a lesson. I can pace since though each chapter covers a lot everything is in managable chunks.

    The sample lessons are reaalistic but more importantly fun and as said give you confidence that "hey I can do this". The text and I really do mean the type is readable and the screen shots are detailed and clear.

    This is the first software book that I am learning from and yes I will be buying Photoshop CS2 1:1 when I finish this book on In-Design.
