5.0 out of 5 stars An enlightening compilation of the industry's best 5 Jun 2014
By no_el - Published on Amazon.com
It's fantastic to read such a diverse range of stories and points of view from such product design powerhouses. Beautifully curated, the conversational interview style pulls you in and keeps you engaged. Not just a must-read for students and burgeoning designers, but also for those in the other creative fields who want a holistic view into the industry.

5.0 out of 5 stars Required reading for anyone entering, working, educating or interested in the design industry. 5 Jun 2014
By Sam - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have been a designer and professor in the design industry for nearly a decade now. This book is essential for those in and entering the design field. This is one of those books I wish I had as a student and will be sure to make it required reading for all of my design students. Never before have I seen such a insight into understanding what the world’s top designers look for in portfolios. Not only is this informational about the designers’ portfolio preferences but you get a understanding of their design philosophy as well as a history of how they entered the industry.

I cannot recommend this more, not just if you’re building a portfolio but also a design professional. “Breaking In” includes insight into the top designers the world, responsible for the products you’re using at this very moment. Nothing like this to my knowledge can be found anywhere else, the Chris Bangle interview is worth the price of the book itself!

5.0 out of 5 stars Required reading for aspiring designers! 26 Jun 2014
By jm2 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Rarely have I seen a book aimed at young designers wanting to 'Break in' to the design profession. This book has 100 interviews with successful/prominent designers on the hows and whys of what is needed in one's portfolio and in general to acquire that coveted design position. The book is a great tool for soon to graduate Industrial Designers on tips and opinions on what is required to gain the attention of those doing the hiring for potential design positions. The candid responses are both informative and enlightening.
Kudos to the author for assembling this wealth of knowledge.

I will be making the book mandatory reading for my Senior Design class at the College for Creative Studies in Detroit,MI.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nuggets of design insights in every interview 11 Jun 2014
By Alex - Published on Amazon.com
The interviews from design greats like Gadi Amit and Chris Bangle have so many tidbits for product designers and design admirers to use as they build their portfolio and career. Each interview is worth taking in and considering rather than rushing through each one. Breaking In is the perfect book to have by your desk to peek into when a moment of inspiration is needed. This much access to the the thoughts of so many world class designers is incredible.
