I loved the organization of this book – simple and to the point, but the best thing about it is the Examples.. wow. They aren’t the same/similar ones you see in many design books – they push the ideas and aren’t afraid to choose examples that are a bit edgy. It is mainly a book dealing with 2-D. I Would have liked to have seen more thinking through 3-D space and the development of objects as well as ideas about visualizations of information and systems – but for a start – it is a well conceived book.
