I purchased this book last year when the company that I work for migrated to Illustrator from Freehand. As a graphics professional, I had used Macromedia Freehand almost exclusively for over 10 years and had very sketchy experience using Illustrator. Since the company was not going to pay for us Freehand users to be re-trained in Illustrator, I looked around quickly for a reference that would fit my needs. I immediately thought of the Visual Quickstart series since I had had good expeiences in the past with some of their other guides. I'm very happy with my choice and am now up to a good level of expertise with Illustrator.

A MUST HAVE
This Visual Quick Start Guide Book is excellent. Easy to follow directions for anything that you want to do in Illustrator. Highly recommended for beginners, and experts too.

A good introductory manual
Skip the manual and read this book instead. Text is appropriately detailed and clear. Many illustrations and examples. Overall, the book is a great introduction to the program and a good reference. However, this is not a step-by-step project guide or tutorial. Don't be fooled by the beautiful color illustrations in the middle of the book...this book won't make you an expert, only an advanced beginner.
