This review is from: Emotionally Durable Design: Objects, Experiences and Empathy (Paperback)I am appalled by the person who has posted the review (giving the book 1 star), were they trying to find a good read, or be spoonfed so they could wake up the next morning feeling like an A - Z encyclopedia of emotionally durable design? I've read the book, and would like to highlight the next sentence with a bright pink marker: the book distills the complexity of design with immense tact, empathy for the reader, and by establishing a book - reader dialogue that few others manage to achieve.
This book is not just an eye opener, but a motivational engine that gains momentum as words pass by. Cradle to Cradle is a great book too, but has the reviewer (above) ever considered the application of Cradle to Cradle in a real scenario? I think not.
The example of denim jeans is great too, isn't it the one thing that has infiltrated wardrobes across the globe? Something everyone can relate to? Maybe the reviewer (I metioned above) wants reputed authors such as J.A.Chapman to write books exclusively for a narrow minded audience like themselves.
Emotionally durable design by J.A.Chapman is not a book, but a telescope...that focuses on exactly the scene we want to know better, and if you are smart enough, you can turn and adjust to see other underexplored scenes it leads you to.
