The most informative, interesting and inspiring book I've ever delved into. I kept it from the library for an entire semester, it was that interesting!! Now I want to read it again..and again...and again...if anything, it is one of the best for reference to any designer of note from the 20th century, plus by the last page, you'll be an expert.
