This is the 2nd edition which includes many new concepts that are all beautifully and simply spread out across a 272-page book. This is a great reference book for anyone, but especially for designers, engineers, architects, and other creative professionals (and students) who want to learn to sharpen and broaden their understanding of design. The book is informative, educational, and also inspiring. Love this classic book. (8 blah Blah Blah: What to do when Words Don't Work. I liked Dan roam's, back of the napkin books, but this one is even better.

Video about the book. ) (6 gamestorming: a playbook for Innovators, rulebreakers, and Changemakers. I am a strong advocate of serious play. Play and school—as well as play and work—are often treated as contradictory ideas, yet it is though play—and games—that we explore, discover, and learn. The authors of Gamestorming get that. There are 83 games introduced in the book that are explained clearly and simply. You can choose the games to fit your needs and your situation. All of the games (or activities if "games" is a scary word in your work environment) can help engage your audience and get them involved in your meeting, seminar, or classroom. The Amazon page has a few examples from the book and there nepali is a video as well here. (7 universal Principles of Design, revised and Updated: 125 ways to Enhance Usability, influence perception, Increase Appeal, make better Design Decisions, and teach through Design. This is an absolutely fabulous book that I have recommend before a few years ago.
Good bits on their website. (5 visual meetings: How Graphics, Sticky notes and Idea mapping Can Transform Group Productivity. As someone who loves whiteboards and other analog tools (and hates typical, boring meetings i found the ideas in this book very refreshing. I can't sum it up better than Amazon: "Visual meetings explains how anyone can implement powerful visual tools, and how these tools are being used in Silicon Valley and elsewhere to facilitate both face-to-face and virtual group work. This dynamic and richly illustrated resource gives meeting leaders, presenters, and consultants a slew of exciting tricks and tools, including." I have been trying revelation to use many of the principles and techniques discussed in the book in my college courses and seminars. I think this could be very useful for teachers and college professors even though it may seem more targeted to business professionals and entrepreneurs. Good discussions on using visual language to facilitate and present to groups.
As the book covers a lot of ground, it may lack the depth for some, but for most people it will be a good primer or a helpful review of important principles. Areas covered include: how people see, how people read, how people remember, how people think, how people focus their attention, what motivates people, and others. I think this is a book that london will help a lot of people who read it to design better visuals and communicate in more engaging ways. (4 business Model Generation: a handbook for Visionaries, game Changers, and Challengers. This is a beautifully designed book. The book is billed as "a handbook for visionaries, game changers, and challengers striving to defy outmoded business models and design tomorrow's enterprises." even if you are not in need of deigning a business model, there are lessons in this book that can challenge your. Amazon says the book is designed for doers who are ready to "abandon outmoded thinking and embrace new models of value creation." i am thinking now to design an entire semester-long course around this book. The book is simple, visual, and clear.
Authors at google talk or this, tEDxBlue talk. (2 design For How people learn. This book is quick and easy to read. If you are already well-read on e-learning and the brain and memory, etc. Then there may not be much new here for you, but it has good material for professionals and students that can help them understand how people learn and how to design learning experiences (like presentations) that do a better job of engaging audiences. For me it was an interesting review of many of the key concepts in e-learning. A much deeper (and expensive) related book is e-learning and the Science of Instruction. (3) 100 Things every designer needs to Know About people. I like how the book is broken up into 100 chucks of 1-3 pages with key principles and practical tips in each of these short sections.

And stay tuned: youll see fiction prominently reviewed in the weeks to come. Thanks for watching us so closely.

In the spirit of personal kaizen, i have listed below a few books that I read (or reread) over the past year that you may want to read as part of your own continuous improvement journey. (1 your Brain at Work: Strategies for overcoming Distraction, regaining Focus, and Working Smarter All day long. Over the last 10-20 years scientists have made many remarkable write discoveries concerning the brain and how it works. David Rock is not a neuroscientist but he is a good "neurotranslator" of the scientific evidence and does a good job of explaining in clear terms how the brain works and how our own understanding of the brain can help us in school, work, and. If you want a small taste of david's work watch this.
I also like to review cookbooks, but with my change in availability i doubt Ill have much time for that now. I say what I think. If you would be upset by a negative review, then its best that you dont contact. (I give out far more positive than negative reviews, but it happens.). I prefer digital copies of books, preferably in Kindle format (unless its a cookbook, in which case i much prefer hard copy.
Also if its a cookbook, give me some timei always make recipes). That way if I dont get to your book for some reason I havent used up one of your copies (and I find my kindle is easier on my tendinitis). Sam Tanenhaus has responded to my open letter in the comments section. I reproduce his reply here. First, were trying to make the book review a timely and lively publication that connects books to the broader culture in the best tradition of American literary sections going back to partisan review, the new Republic, and the nation in the 1930s up through The. Our hope is that by making the times book review more relevant week to week we'll draw more readers into the world of books. Beyond this, the back page has historically been a place to widen the discussion and explore different aspects of the literary-intellectual life. That life, i might add, has many dimensions, no less so today than in prior eras, and we want to do justice to that multi-dimensionality in our pages (not only on the back page). This is why we did an issue on music books a while back and followed up soon after with an issue in which prime space went to four short-story collections.

Rule three: ask around. You can get the scoop, and it might make you change your mind. For example, would you go see the one about the lost Art of the self join if I wasnt here telling you how much you dont want to miss that one? Rule four: go to my sessions *wink. 4/24/2018: due to returning to college, im pretty much not going to be taking books for review any more. Youre welcome to contact me (ove at m) but please business dont expect a reply, and please request a review by emailing, not by leaving a comment.

Number two rule: if the description is vague, or if it sounds like regurgitation, Im skeptical. For example, if the summary starts off by saying Todays databases are dealing with more data than ever before. Data is mission-critical to todays business enterprises they lost me already. Writing that in a session description betrays thoughtlessness. There actually are a couple of time slots that i am not really zinged about any of the sessions, and wish that I could see one of the sessions thats happening while essay Im presenting myself instead. But for the most part, theres more goodness than I can actually take. This year the conference website has become web.0ish, in a good way.

This years conference has a presentation great lineup. As usual, with 8 sessions concurrently, its impossible to pick which ones I want to see. However, i did learn a few things from last years conference, which I think will help me get more out of it this time. Number one rule: not all sessions are created equal. I cant say for sure, but Im pretty sure that when you see how Product x will Scale your Databases presented by a person from Company x, you can reasonably suspect that Company x is paying for this privilege, and its not really a session. These sessions were not reviewed and voted on by the community (I know, because i was one of the community members who were asked to review and vote on proposals. Maybe Im being a whistle-blower and wont get this honor next year as a result).
