Praise for Make It Now!

On one hand it's a rollicking retrospective from a respected name in the world of graphic design, on the other it's a reminder worth heeding about the sources of creativity and role of the designer to question, improve and probe. It's a failsafe first-person account that validates, vindicates and inspires the little-represented idea of success - and being nice while you do it.
