The anonymous reviewer obvious has no respect for good art or brilliant book designers like Chip Kidd. This is a beautiful book to give as a gift or to just have on your personal collection. It is for book lovers and art lovers alike.
Short and sweet, inspiring and inspired. A must read for all creative types and recommended for everyone else. Neil Gaiman shares important lessons and critical reminders. Chip Kidd puts those words together in a brilliant layout. A perfect little book.
Now I know excatly what to do if my leg is crushed and then eaten by a mutated boa constrictor.
One of the most inspiring pieces I've ever read or heard.
This little book is one of the most beautifully designed books I have ever seen. The limited red and blue color scheme really allows the artist, Chip Kidd, to focus on pure design and he suceeds in every possible way. The subject matter and the design are so well matched. I highly recommend this amazing little book.
This book uses different fonts. That's the only difference between it and the text of the speech available for free online. Skip it.
