Great book

I have used this book for 4 quarters in a beginning ASP course and it has proven itself to be rock solid. It is easy to read, the choice and sequencing of topics is excellent and the examples work. It gets consistently positive feedback from my students. Many thanks to Scott Mitchell and James Atkinson for doing such a great job.

It will change the way you visualize a printed page

This, and other Robin Williams books will not only change the way you create printed documents, it will change the way you evaluate a printed page. In a clear, concise, and informative style, you'll learn the principles of good design. Another distinguishing plus is that this book is a joy to read. The majority of desktop publishing books are written by designers who need training in writing; this is certainly not the case here. A must-have, along with "The Mac/PC Is Not A Typewriter" and her other books.

Compiler Writing Masterpiece!

I started reading this book (on and off) about 8 months ago. I have not read much beyond chapter 2. But just from the first two chapters alone, I have gained enough know-how to construct a working interpreter!!! I never thought I could write a computer language. But when the need arose to write one, I was surprised how easy it turned out to be, because of the techniques I acquired from this book. Hats off to all the three authors for an incredibly powerful and useful book!!!

Good for Non-Technical People

Alot of fluff in this book. The first 100 pages could be condensed into about 25. Alot of time is spent explaining how to do user and management interviews. The interview stuff goes on and on, and on! I reccommend finding something else!
