Reviews - What do customers think about What is Product Design? (Essential Design Handbooks)?

Design Student's Companion  Dec 1, 2007
From a product design student:

I was very impressed with the organization and presentation of information in this book. Good balance of images, text, and charts. It has four basic sections: Issues concerning product designers; the Anatomy of design (from essential skills to understanding the design process to distribution and IP of designs); Portfolio examples of companies and individuals - it shows not only high profile ID but especially inspirational and exploratory design work; and finally at Etc. section for resources, glossary, index, and credits.

This book completely answers the question posed by its title in a clear and thorough manner. 'Nuff said.
