Creative Selection by Ken Kocienda
John’s first review of the year
really liked it
More of a generous 3.5 stars.

Definitely a worthwhile read for anyone doing product development or design.

It's kind of stuck in an uncomfortable halfway point between between a business autobiography and a product design manual. It's far, far stronger when it's in the autobiographical mode.

really liked it
This was really hard to put down. Think of it like better call saul meets william gibson.

Well plotted, occasionally drifts into clich or jargon. A weird book I'm glad exists.
