I chose this rating because it was my absolute favourite book after the ottoline series by Chris Riddell.

I would recommend this book to my friend Mia.

I read Dave Trott's first book, 'Creative Mischief', and thought it was excellent. 'Predatory Thinking' is even better. Can't get enough of his writing and storytelling. Difficult to put this book into a genre. Part human psychology, part business thinking, part creative industries know-how. I think this book would appeal to a broad range of people... Dave's writing kind of wakes you up from the daily sleep-walk in life, business and creativity. And I think we all need a good shake every now and then.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must read for anyone about to strike out as an independent graphic designer, 2 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is the book that I would have liked to have read before I set up my own studio, ten years ago. The book is very thorough, covering a range of issues that most designers will encounter at some point. The book begins with the mindset needed to be a designer, and whats needed to take that first step into being your own boss. It touches on the crucial business basics you'll need to be aware of to keep the ship running smoothly. I like the books honesty. Just like any business, graphic design has its ups and downs. You'll encounter challenging briefs, challenging clients and curve balls that are difficult to predict. 'Work for Money, Design for Love' covers most of the big issues and gives some very valuable tips on how to navigate your way through them. If you've been in design for a few years, or have just graduated, read this book before you set up as an independent designer - you'll have a head start on the rest of the field. A level headed read that will give you the most valuable ingredient needed to succeed - confidence.
