A good book on the need to change the way we design the entire spectrum of human artifacts, from buildings to automobiles to snackbars. Papanek discusses how product design should go far beyond aesthetics. Products can and should be designed to be energy efficient, environmentally friendly, conducive to human health, and easy to use and repair. He relates his own experiences in the design of a wide range of products and how he used his position as a designer to advocate this agenda. The text is largely engaging and easy to read. This is a good primer for anyone entering a field of product engineering or design. ( )
