"There is a sea of books aimed at students produced every year. Most are overly complex and illustrated with unnecessary eye candy. Few are logical, legible, sensible, affordable and (above all) helpful for a young designer taking their first steps into the design jungle following the comfort of university. But Phil Cleaver's book has all that and more. Keep it in your bag, by your bed or on your desk: you won't regret it" - Mike Dempsey
