Jump into Sagmeister's brain and you will come out feeling refreshed with possibility. Full of wonderful, inventive, anarchic, executed ideas. Makes you realise that creativity can overflow across the barriers that we all tend to get pigeoned holed by. Yes it's another self indulgent graphic design book. But one that will stay with you forever. People with ideas like this are timeless.

This is quite simply an exquisite gem.

I consider myself a lay person when it comes to graphic design, but nonetheless, this book is bursting with ideas and possibilities that all creative people, no, ALL people can incorporate into their lives, so as to bring a smile to the rest of humanity. It is a 'warts and all' story of how Stefan Sagmeister has become such a well respected designer; he tells not only of the high points, such as designing CD sleeves for the Rolling Stones, but also the low points in setting up his design agency.

This is definitely a desert island book for me. Buy it for yourself and anyone you love!

Excellent overview of the design work of Stephen Sagmeister. I am a huge fan of his work and in my opinion this book definitely does him justice. The book is very well designed and the cover's changing image design is beautiful. If you are a fan of his work, or want a good introduction to his graphics work this book is perfect.

I am not the worlds biggest fan of Stefan Sagmeister. As with all aspects of art and design it all comes down to personal tastes and mine don't quite line up with Mr Sagmeister's. That being said this is an excellent book as the man himself and his range of ideas is fascinating.

Stefan Sagmeister is pretty much guaranteed to come up with something incredibly creative and imaginative for every brief he is given. He doesn't do anything by half measures and this book is no different. It is packed with his most iconic work as well as a great deal of his own personal story and both aspects are truly interesting.

What really inspires me though is his thought process and the amount of effort he puts into every design. It is truly inspiring and he is deserving of the fame that he has built for that alone.

The book itself is wonderfully produced, the paper is of good stock and the book is certainly unique.

Overall this is a wonderful book that is worth the price tag and will take pride of place on the Design shelf of my book case.

And also who don't I suppose, because the very first time my graphic teacher showed this book to the class, it was an instant success even if we never heard about Sagmeister. The book itself is a joy for every sense, allow you to play with it while discovering the incredible genius of Stefan, and his irresistible quirky humor, making you laugh, horrify and think. From the cover: "I saw a chinese in NYC wearing a T-shirt that says - so many dogs, so few recipes- "
