Stefan Sagmeister writes the forward, he discussed his career and how he dealt with the difficulties inherent in the field. He advises that you must get away from your job, and take a break, this way you can recharge. Adrian Shaughnessy says that this book is just what the world needs, yet another book about design, but as he says this one is about the dirty bits, its by designers for designers so it is a bit more in the trenches than others. Chapter one tells us about the three things a modern designer needs, Cultural Awareness, Communication, and a sense of integrity.
