pretty good reading,
This review is from: How to be a Graphic Designer, Without Losing Your Soul (Paperback)I was flicking through this one evening at Borders, saw some interesting parts and bought it a day later on Amazon.
Its essentially a collection of nuggets of good advice gained from the (in)experience of a guy who's been in the design industry for a good few years.
I think there's a couple of good lessons in there that should be taught at college (well at least my old college). It doesn't teach you any design fundamentals but it attempts to show you ways of not messing up too bad when you go for interviews, if you're setting up your own your own studio, etc.
It's well written and some of it is self deprecating. It was nice to see that even well known super experienced designers have moments of self doubt now and then. I found it quite refreshing to read.
Definitely recommended it if you're interested in the ins and outs of doing well in graphic design when you are actually not doing any graphic designing.
