This is a great book for people completely new to graphic design. The author uses easy to understand explanations that make complex graphic design concepts more accessible to the layperson. It's one of the first books I ever read on the topic and I still refer back to it years later. If you can only afford one book on graphic design, this would be an excellent choice. Just one or two of the suggestions in this book can help your book cover and interior design stand out from the competition.
