Review:

"This is a lavishly illustrated and 'well finished' book that will repay careful study...Useful and inspiring." - I-Programmer

"I found myself very engaged in spite of the fact that as a design professor I know this stuff already" --Jennifer George-Palilonis, Ball State University

"The mix of traditional and new media...is excellent. This is what makes this text good and unique."--Scott Farrand, University of South Carolina

"Even if you walk away with 'only' a couple of good ideas or corrections to your present modus operandi then you will have got your money's worth. This is a book that is capable of so much giving if you let it."--Darren Ingram, NetGalley

"Instructors, students, and professionals will value WSINYE for its concision, lively tone, direct, practical advice, plethora of examples, and a helpful glossary." -- Donald R. Riccomini, Santa Clara University
