    1. I considered this book a must read as a graphic designer just starting out: While I was at uni I realised that there were a lot of unspoken, often untaught, rules about layout and typography that I just needed know. It made me insecure and afraid to make mistakes - making me afraid to start a new project incase I did something stupid - but reading this book has helped me let go of the fear of making rookie mistakes and has set me free to be a lot more creative as a person.It's kind of like the P [...]

    2. Useful rules written in a (mostly) funny and entertaining way.E.g.:Commentary If you're looking for a new colourway for your latest project, there are lots of very useful resources out there in print and online where thousands of different colour combinations or schemes can be referenced and compared. However, there's another way of looking for colour combinations that will not only provide a real-world view of how colours might combine but has been provided by the absolute experts of colour. Lo [...]

    3. I really thoroughly enjoyed this book and read it from cover to cover. I am a beginner and hence many of the concept were novel to me and beg further research - all the more reason to return to the book when I am a bit wiser and nod my head in understanding and agreement. Still, as it is it will allow one to make less rookie mistakes and not feel bad in client communication, when your gut tells you to demand a good written brief, yet you're unsure if it is indeed done that way and if the client [...]

    4. I have skimmed through the whole book and plan on going through again with a fine tooth comb soon. I hope this isn't premature, but I'm calling this my Graphic Design Bible as I get deeper into the world of Graphic Design. I don't know how it holds up for seasoned graphic designers - perhaps it's all basics to them? But I did Illustration at university and it's all new to me. Some things are more obvious than others, but the precious esoteric tidbits like not letting a line end with the words "i [...]

    5. Another guide to Graphic Design; my latest interest. Useful to a beginner but overall definitely one for an actual designer rather than the innocent by-stander I happen to be. Lots of great ideas but many of them (especially in the typography section) are too detailed for me. But that's a failing of me rather than the book itself.

    6. I think that books like this one, that gather bits and pieces of information about a field of study, are really smart and helpful. Plus, Graphic Design Rules is a joy to browse, not to mention funny, too.

    7. A great introduction to the field written in a clear and amusing style. Perfect for deciphering a lot of the jargon you were too afraid to ask about.
