Book review: The Non-Designer's Design Book by Robin P. Williams

The Non-Designer's Design Book (Non Designer's Design Book)The Non-Designer's Design Book by Robin P. Williams
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A short little book that is helpful even after the first couple of pages. It explains thoroughly in a practical and useful way how to write texts, in any fashion. It's not so much about the text itself, but all about how to design your texts. What works and what not, where the author clearly defines 'works' as 'somebody is ready what you have written'.
Too often I struggle with writing reports, documents, blogs, CV's, cover letters etc. Fiddling around with fonts, colors, styles, etc. I now feel way more confident in that I can style my documents more effectively. And while typing this, I realize that pretty much everything I learned by reading this book has nog been consciously applied in this book review. Shame on me. I guess.

Book review: The Winter Over by Matthew Iden

The Winter OverThe Winter Over by Matthew Iden
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Very captivating story about a research facility. As the story progresses and unfolds, the secrets are uncovered at the same pace as I was reading the story and drew my own conclusions. No far fetched plot turns. Although the revelation of the evildoer wasn't really surprising, it was still very interesting.
