This book is in a way very similar to the Illustrator Wow series of books. There are tutorials and artist galleries.
The tutorials are short and each dedicated to a specific function of the software, in this case Adobe Illustrator. They are well captioned, easy to follow and learn. This book is a good supplement if you're learning the software from the manual or just starting out.
The artist galleries feature beautiful illustrations done vector-style. It really shows the capabilities and unique features of vector art well.
This book is great for beginners.
