Format: Paperback
I agree with Luca's comment this book is a blasphemy to any research book on visual methods, this person needs to get their eyes checked by a good doctor before preaching to anyone with a condescending manner ! stick your nose in a good book for visual research method, I think a blind school can teach better visual than this book!

Format: Paperback
A book about visual research that is printed in black and white, not very good seen as it's about visual research the book should be vibrant and make you want to read it. At first glance you feel like your getting a lot of information in this book but soon realise it's padded out with a lot of pointless interviews and "case studies". There are more effective and visually interesting research books for cheaper prices!

Format: Paperback
The worst and stupidest book ever written! It's not even good for primary school! Not updated, no pedagogical understanding. Treat the reader as retarded people. If you want material to laugh with your friends then buy it and enjoy it with them!

Very informative! 18 Oct 2012
By Patricia - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is very interesting for designers who enjoy and A LOT to research (my case) and it's very beautifully printed, very nice and easy to look at any information you need, the book is very malleable!
The cover is a bit light to me, i thought it was more thick.
