Good for a casual read if you're a design student. It is mostly focused on graphic design and unlikely to be very useful for even graphics students. Looking at past and present work and lifestyle is fun for a while.

Very quick read due to how little text there is.
Interesting but not in-depth enough for me.

A very cool book packed with a surprising amount of information.
Two criticisms though: (1) I felt it would have been better if they had presented the designer's pieces first and then had the designer's interview after because the interview talks about the pieces but the reader has no clue unless he turns the page first. (2) I wish the portraits on pages 22 and 23 were in color instead of in a depressing high contrast black and white. I agree with another reviewer that some designers are terrible writers; maybe the written word is not as expressive as spoken ones or design feelings just aren't easy to set in writing.
