    Never give up. You will never fail, but you may find a lot of ways that don't work.

    Yes I have also like this but when I was searching on google to find the best books, I have found this blog to suggest some great author books. but it doesn't attach Gary Bouton's book's name.

    Ray, thank you.

    I tried the Brand House Book and now I know everything about building a house and nothing about web design.
    The Shape of Design is a "Buy" and out of stock - strange for a free book.
    Logo design has some interesting fails yet manages to throw in McDonalds' Golden Arches reversed.
    I refuse to consider Pay Me...
    Creative Aid was all Zen.

    Sorry yet to find something to cherish.

    Not my blog, I just thought the person asking may find something useful there.

    They state they are a beginner so I tried to give them something to use. As the more experienced people on here my not find anything to use from the list it may help others.

    Of course it was but by not biting, they go away. I left reporting it as the list was quite useful.
