It's not a just a book of design, it's also a book about life. The 10 laws with 3 keys may sound a bit self-contradictory especially when your mind is not very clear, you may also find them a bit "universally true" (i.e.nonsense), but they really do provide good insights and inspirations.
2 reminders here:
- Don't forget to read till the last page, there's a "You're still here?" where you can find a quite philosophical conversation.
- Don't forget to visit Professor Maeda's website, it is even more informative, funny and meaningful:
So far the best book I have read on simplicity. I am happy to know that John Maeda also discards business cards once he inputs into his data base, same as my practice.
Not bad, but not as substantive as I wish. Got some interesting ideas but calling them "Laws" seems to be taking it all too seriously. And the overuse of cheesy acronyms is annoying.
