On the surface, it seems like Bruce Mau is a great designer, with great work in a great book. Nope. It's all fluff, all style, all flash. No real substance, no conceptul work. It¿s all function follows form. I would return this book, but I will use it as an example to future designers as ¿what not to do.¿Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

This is interesting, in the sense that Bruce Mau has a very conscious and intelectual approach to design. It's not too technical, and he provides a very readable and understandable explanation to his approach, which also reaches beyond just design issues, but more of the state of human attention in the 21st century. And of course, this book itself reflects his ideas of design, so you literary see what you read. Too bad you can't carry this book around... One thing. On my visit to a design book store, I realized that this book has several versions of cover. One is light blue, but there are atleast beige, red, pink, black, and also there seems to be variations in the pattern. The content is all the same, and I don't know if there's any way of specifying the ones that you want, but it'll be better if you can.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
