If you know anything at all about design, project management, presentations, or have ever ventured outside the box to solve a vexing problem, this book will be an extremely fast and not terribly informative read. I imagine some might be wowed...I have someone in mind to recommend it to...but the gimmick lost its appeal quickly. He should have used fewer napkins. ( )

Excellent way to think - in pictures. Makes you put things in context. ( )

For Isabelle.
You saw this book coming long before I did,
and you saw it through every way.
Now that's love.
