Default InDesign CS2 book

Hi,

We're just about to upgrade from InDesign CS to CS2 on our Macs. Does anyone have a recommended reference book? We have been using David Bergsland's "How do Do Everything with Adobe InDesign CS" and rather liked the way it complemented the manual, but he doesn't seem to have done a book for CS2.

Any suggestions (apart from this obviously excellent forum itself!)?

Best wishes, Adrian

Real World Adobe InDesign CS2 by Ole Kvern and David Blatner would be at the top of my list. (The link is to the publisher’s site, but you can find it discounted at big book stores.)

Do you need a book? The change from CS to CS2 is not that big. I can see getting a book if you are coming from Pagemaker or Quark, but between versions the help files should be enough.

Most CS2 books will be rewrites of a CS book anyway, with a few new additions to deal with new features. I bet checking the "new features" file that comes with CS2, and then reading help files on those features will do about as much as getting a new book.

Agreed. InDesign has very good help files. Those books are all really expensive and outdated within a year, and have no resale value.
