(Goodreads Synopsis)

I recently purchased the InDesign software and, while I could work my way around it a fair bit, I wanted a book to teach me some of those extra cool options.

This is the one I picked after looking at several and reading reviews and I reckon I made a good choice.

This book is easy to read and understand and it takes you through things step by step, making it perfect for a novice like me.

Having the video tutorial and e-book options is also a bonus and I'm sure I'll make use of those in due course.

I look forward to trying out some of the things I've been reading about soon.
