    If you are starting a career in graphic design this book can give you a short but effective overview of the basic principles professional designers follow in their work, and the aesthetics behind it.

    But if you are simply someone that, for some reason or the other, needs to build some graphical skills, and apply what you learn to some practical work, you are going to find this book just too theoretical.

    The only part which seemed to me to be a bit more down-to-earth is the last section (the fourth) about type, and even in that case, as in the rest of the book, there are no such things as instructions, practical examples, exercises, hints, tips, tricks or anything that might help a beginner to actually start designing in a less clumsy way. The first three sections, in case you wonder, are about space, unity, and page architecture.

    Bottom line: if you are already in some serious way into graphic design, or would like to be, go for this book. If you aren't, what this book will give you is at best a better understanding of other people's work.
