Book reviews

Anyone know any decent book review websites where I can see some thought one Design type books in particular?


EDIT: Or does anyone recommend any books?

Berry made a list iirc but can't remember where he did that, might be worth a search on berry's posts
Yeah I remember that post, I just went through Berry's posts just then and couldnt see it. Maybe it was Greg that posted? or Chris maybe..I remember it was one of the more active users..

that list was composed by Berry, I'm sure the list only has decent books. As to reviews, amazon is usually pretty good in my view :p
When is the Smashing Magazine going to be out? I know you can pre-order it now, but when is it actually going to be distributed?
Does anybody know?
Your Smashing Book: Update

Starts shipping 23rd Nov, ditto on the pre-order, hope it's worth it!

I'm also waiting for Mark Boulton's new book too :( 'Designing Grid systems for the Web' oh and I have David Airey's Logo Design Love on pre-order. I love my books :(

I have some of the books on Berry's list and they're great, going to add one or two from it on to my Christmas Wish List me thinks :)


I'm still waiting for my copy too... I did get an email saying there was a slight delay due to Christmas :(
