Customer Reviews
Reviewer: A reader from Texas
I grasp computer concepts very quickly and have worked with some desktop publishing programs, but had never worked with a "professional" graphics program before. This book, however, was excellent; within an hour I was up and running and very comfortable using both the program and the book. Would recommend highly. Now I wish the author would write one for Corel PhotoPaint (hint, hint).

Reviewer: A reader from New Jersey
This book is exactly what the Visual QuickStart Series is all about - concise, illustrated explanations of most of the features you'll need to be up and running with minimal effort. Ms. Davis' enthusiasm and expertise with CorelDraw 8 makes the book a pleasure to read and work with. Although I use the Macintosh version of the program (there are several interface differences), this book for Windows was exactly what I needed to start using the prgram to create a newsletter for work. I'm brand new to these types of programs, and after struggling through the Bible and Real-World books on Illustrator and PageMaker, this book was a welcome and mercifully brief grand slam. You can skip most of the first 40 or so pages if you are not new to desktop design/publishing, and get right to working with the impressive tools in the program. For me, though, they were a godsend.
