    I am a business student taking a graphic design course in college. I purchased the print edition of this textbook. The material was in depth and the illustrations helped to spell out the concepts. Personally, I found the text to be a bit dry for my tastes and it often felt like trying to read an illustrated dictionary on design, from A to Z. This is probably somewhere around my 40th college textbook I’ve read. Based on my highly opinionated, subjective experience, I’d rate it as four out of five stars.

    I gave it one star, however, because this is an incomplete product. Chapters 14 through 16 are not in the book. You have to go online, somewhere, to find them. The book doesn’t bother to tell you where.

    This is like buying a pound of expensive deli food and later discovering the bottom 20% of the container is empty, with the exception of an IOU message and an email address.

    Okay, perhaps this is an ethically questionable way of redirecting readers to notice the book’s companion website. This is a graphic design book, so those online chapters will certainly be interactive, cutting edge, and with all kinds of bells and whistles, right? Wrong! those chapters are pdfs!

    It’s smart to count your change after you’ve bought something. Nowadays it seems that we have to count that the pages are all there before purchasing books from some authors.
    Avoid this product if you can.

    I bought this book directly from Amazon at full price ($129.39) for my class, when it first came out (no used book available). When it came to reading materials from online chapters, I could not find any website with that information, even after registering for all web links I found on the covers of the book and reading through the index and chapters… Out of 16 chapters, 14-16 were “online”. I asked my friend to look through the book as well to make sure I didn’t miss a web link, and he could not find the online chapters either. I then asked my professor about ways to access online material, and he said he asked the publisher on my behalf but he never heard back… All my classmates have the 4th edition of the book, which has some of the online chapters printed. so I cannot recommend this book to anyone. If you really need this book for a class, get the cheaper previous edition that has less material “online”.
