A good book for mainly novice design students which gives a full spectrum into different matters involved in designing in a really simple language.
Great! The format was set up the way a designer thinks- hundreds of short one-page essays. Tightly edited. Insightful and re-affirming.
Simply: it was amazing. Well-written, easy to read, interesting and funny!
