The first half of the book could have been presented and written more concisely. The latter half certainly has useful examples of what collages and vision boards look like. It was annoying to find that in some cases the author would refer the reader to her other books for further information about something. When I think about how much waffle could have been edited out from the first half and made way for sections from her other books instead, it irks me. That said – it’s a nice book for an intr ...more
I read parts of this book years ago when I bought it, but I'd never read it cover to cover.

Another school book for me and I now that I have read the whole thing I will go back and use it in the workshop manner that it is written in. I had to get through it to write a paper on it though. It is an interesting take on designing your life and a path to help support your reaching your goals by using the tools that designers use. Ya know - clothing designers, architects or cartoonists. It seems a bit fluffy initally but the few exercises I have dont so far have been pretty powerful!
The purpose and method of visioning is well illustrated here by Lucia Capacchone. I will use a good deal of what I have learned personally and in my own teaching. My main criticism is that the explanation of the process was a bit long winded and there could have been more time and space for further examples and for the range of applications - hence the 3 stars.
