I actually use this book a lot, even if i don't like it that much.
It has a definite narrative that evolves from project to project, wandering from wonderful story to wonderful implementation. A tale built on example and tell-tale talent. But it falls a bit short. You remain with the desire for a bit of additional depth. Be it visual or descriptive. Depth.
But then again you can embrace this book with a more zen attitude in mind, and it becomes a great experience.
