“You’ve gathered pertinent information from vast resources into this e-book – and in an understandable language (not dumbed down however). These e-books are one of the must-have’s in digital presentation. Adobe etc. are constantly producing better tools, but tools can’t really make choices. The information you provide is needed for that. I can’t take color (and my ability to use it) for granted any longer.The nicest part of them is that I don’t have to eat a lot of vegetables to get the dessert. And I’ve only read it once. You done good with this one.” … David Towle
