Default QXP to ID book

The current issue of PC Graphics Report has a review on a new book on converting QXP to ID QuarkXPress to InDesign: Face to Face by Galen Gruman.

While there are some problems with the book, PC Graphics Report states:

"But the layout of this book is what makes it useful. On the left page he has the Quark ways of doing things, and on the right is the InDesign equivalent. Each issue has its own double page spread; sometimes he crams information onto a page so as not to go to two spreads, and often he seems to leave out bits for the same reason. In the more than 150 speads, he manages to cover the major issues and many of the arcane ones as well."

The review also states that the book attempts to answer switching questions for QXP 4.1, 5, 6.5 and ID CS and CS2 and that Gruman assumes one is mac based.
