Though i'm not the designer type, i like to follow Smashing Magazine, very nice articles, monthly wallpapers :) and much more. So, when the pre-order notice on the Smashing Book came out, i immediately subscribed.
Though the wait went on for almost four months, it finally arrived and i have been hooked on it for almost tree days. I have enjoyed every page until now, a very fine read. It covers many topics on design and usability, presenting technics and small guides. I highly recommend it!
