Thinking Like a Designer is a great tool for designers who work directly with clients without the help of an editor or a publisher’s project manager. It’s an easy-to-read introduction for the inexperienced author to the best ways to prepare to work with the designer. The payoff for the author is a quicker, more efficient, and less costly design and layout of his or her book. For the designer, it’s a way to work with an informed and helpful client. $9.95 plus shipping.
