Totally clueless on graphic design, I wanted to have knowledge, even if most basic, on good and bad of designing. This book definitely provided me with basic technical ability to do so. Suggestions on creating one-page designs for simple newsletters, brochures, or business cards have been an eye-opener for me. Also, it has given me helpful and useful insights on world of layout.
Mind you, book does not make you an instant expert and professional designer who is capable of producing sophisticated works of art. For this, you really need to have a formal degree to achieve this.

Provide yourself time to read book and do exercises. It will definitely help you improve your designs. I know mine did.
