Each day, no matter where we turn, we are confronted with examples of things that have been designed: the chair we sit on, the clothes we wear, the magazines we read, the car we drive, the house we live in, and the street we live on. Read the first page

My one complaint is that important aspects of design are omitted. For example, the topic of color is not covered, not even in essentials. It is implicit in some chapters but you have to infer how a design principle such as unity would apply to the selection of a color palette. A minor complaint is that there is too little content on each topic, the explanations could be "fleshed out" a little more.
The book itself is beautifully designed and easy to read. I think I read it in a 2 days. It provides a good introduction to design for the newcomer and a good refresher course on the basics for the experienced designer.
