This is such a great way to learn Illustrator basics! Don't be intimidated by the size! It is written in plain English and uses humor to help you become familiar with many non-familiar and intimidating terms. There are illustrations (!) for almost every step in the process, which are very helpful. It is not organized as lessons but instead, begins with the description of each tool and its use and then tells you how to implement the tool and shows you illustrations of what the result should look like. It then tells you, in successive chapters, the various ways to combine the basics and enhance them with devices like color, gradients and type to make an illustration. It demystifies such esoterica as "masking", "paths", "layers" and "Bezier curves"and explains what they do. Then it explains why you should master them and how to implement them. I haven't even gotten to the included CD yet, I'm saving it for when I finish the book! It contains a sampling of effects and fonts and some utilities that you can use with Illustrator. An excellent beginner's book and an encouraging way to get started in Illustrator.

A great reference too for Illustrator. Don't use it on it's own though but in conjunction with other references. Has some great thought provoking ideas on using Illustrator.

Menus & dialog boxes are illustrated throughout, helping the user find the right buttons & settings. Well designed output samples show what is going on with each step, making the transition to the advanced features a smooth one.
Some of the things I found most useful were detailed information on the use of Photoshop filters in Illustrator and extensive coverage of third party plug-ins. The chapter on type showed me some great new ideas.
There is a color gallery in the middle of the book that shows off the fabulous potential of Illustrator 8. Most of this art is on the CD-ROM included with the book, as are a number of demos & plug-ins, some are only for the MAC.

I bought this book online, and therefore without having the opportunity to flip through it. I was disappointed. Grip #1 I was left with the impression that the schtick of the "Bible" series is to put out really fat books implying that it's a complete treatment. Don't be fooled. There is a LOT of filler in the 775 pages. Gripe #2: It seems poorly organized, as if slapped together. Overlapping and related information is covered in multiple parts of the book. The flow of ideas is sometimes unpredictable, again making it look unedited. Gripe #3: the examples are hypothetical - not applied. (I wonder about the authors' graphical talent based on the unprofessional illustrations peppering the book.) So while you might learn what effect various settings have, it's pretty much up to you to figure out how you'd use it in real life. (For a contrast, see Photoshop 5/5.2 Wow book, which shows you compelling end-results and shows you how you apply Photoshop's tools to create it. I wish the Illustrator WOW book was as good!) I will admit that I learned some basic techniques with this book, but overall I cannot recommend it.

I don't own this book, yet. But browsing through it at a local bookstore, I have to say that the examples are the best I've seen for Illustrator (any version). So I don't know what that other reviewer is talking about. I thumbed through it for some advice on blends, gradients, and the new gradieant mesh tool. Now I'm thinking of shelling out the money for it...Despite the fact all computer books being ridiculousy overpriced and using a CD-ROM with useless programs or programs everyone has (i.e. Netscape/Explorer) for an excuse to raise the further. One note: the Illustrator 5/5.5 Bible CD-ROM DID include some very helpful Quicktime instructions that I wish they still did.

This is a great book for learning the basics of Adobe Illustrator 8 in a very short time. The examples it provides really help you along, and you are doing cool looking logos in no time. Yes, there are better books out there, but this one is great for people who are just starting out. Worth the read.
