أعجبتني أشكال التخطيطات التي استعرضها. و المعلومات التي أوردها وجدتها مفيدة و تعلمت منها الكثير.

أظنه كتابا مهما لمن يود تصميم/تخطيط/نشر كتاب أو مجلة إلكترونيا.

Great tips.: I subscribe to the before & after website and decided to buy this book based on my satisfaction with that membership. The book has great design information. It's so helpful to have the here's what it looked like before and here's how it could be better aspects. It really helps me in my design work.
I have been working with page design since high school and reviewing the basics is always a breath of fresh air that helps me reset and clear the clutter when I begin a project--or rework a project. Thanks john McWade!

Through Seth. He says John McWade's books taught him to see what others would see in a design that you the designer tend to ignore.
