This book is a micro collection of snippets of graphic design stories, wisdom, opinions and lies. It is wrote really well and engages you from the start. I wish I had read this while studying for my graphic design degree! For me personally, there is a Paul Arden feel to the book (not just in size), similar like 'Whatever you think, think the opposite' but more in-depth with real life opinions and stories within the graphic design industry. This book will not tell you how to be a graphic designer, neither should it, but it does give you an insight into the experiences the talented Craig Ward has had. These are invaluable to the young students and designers. The book is small enough to read in a short amount of time but not too short as to not take something away from it. A must read for all. I would give this 4.5 out of 5 if I could.

The book is now in its 2nd print which is fantastic and full deserving. I now really hope for another book from this talented writer and designer.

Unlike most graphic design books, this really spoke to me as a designer. Nothing's set in stone when you're a designer. Things are good, things are bad. This book covers all the areas of being a designer including how you feel about being a designer and your work. It made me feel good to know other designers are in the same boat as me and struggle with certain things but find other things easy.

The design is brilliant also, mostly manipulated type, simple yet extremely effective.

Essential for anyone who sees being a designer as their life's calling.

I've always had a soft spot for things that were clearly a labour of love. However, personal taste aside, I think this is a book that still deserves the stars I gave it. I think this book will not please everyone, but in a good way. It certainly made me question a few of my own opinions about design since I know I'm guilty of one or two of the things the book talks about. I love the design industry, but in an industry of egos and self-aggrandizing this book is a much needed steaming hot mug of `Shut the F*** Up'.
