  3. There is a big difference between practicing something and critiquing it Which is fine, but this book makes me feel acutely that this is someone who has never practiced design And that s fine, but the criticism doesn t feel very nuanced or attuned to what all of this means either This is a because I like design kind of book But at some point, exampl...

  4.

  5. Neat and cleanly written introduction, if not exactly revelatory e.g on the effectively manipulative gaucheness of Google s logos, Google s corporate identity excels thanks to its logo s aesthetic flaws I do wonder how persuasive Rawsthorn s centralisation of integrity, which embraces environmental and ethical responsibility in design would be to someone who doesn t already agree with her, as I do conversely I wished forof her s...

  6. This book was much broader in scope than I expected Rather than focusing on any one aspect of design, the author discusses design thinking, a form of problem solving that can be generalized to any area The examples discussed are compelling the writing is ...

  7. Interesting history of design thinking, but mostly on the history of product design Got some great snippets, but was left wantingTough topic to encapsulate, however, in one book Perhaps her next one will bepointed.

  8. Very good, but not great The first few chapters are very insightful However, the rest settles into an essayistic pattern and chapters are bit disconnected.Odd choice of typography Helvetica did not work as main text font.
