Dear User Group members,
This month seems to be the calm before the storm of new books that will release in the last two months of this year! But even though this month's releases are small in quantity they are in no way insignificant. We have two heavy hitters releasing for InDesign: Sandee Cohen's InDesign CS3 for Macintosh and Windows: Visual QuickStart Guide, and Olav Kvern's and David Blatner's Real World Adobe InDesign CS3. David Blatner makes a second appearance with his Real World QuarkXPress 7. Ben Forta's bestselling ColdFusion book has been updated for version 8, Adobe ColdFusion 8 Web Application Construction Kit, Volume 1: Getting Started, and everyone's favorite author Robin Williams has a twofer with the release of The Non-Designer's Design and Type Book, Deluxe Edition.
