If you have any interest in typography at all, you need this book! Not only does he explore type, but he also explores and plays with amazing layouts and narratives within this book. A must-have!

Format: Paperback
Things I have learned in my life so far, does not contain a lot of written content, rather it is comprised of photographs of Sagmeister's lessons spelled out with various forms and scales of physical typography. Each lesson has a small story about how he learned it and how much trouble or ease he has had using the knowledge. I bought the book for my graphic designer girlfriend who enjoys most of Sagmeister's work, I also read the book one afternoon and am trying to incorporate some of the lessons into my New years resolution.

things I have learned from this book Feb. 22 2008
By Paul L. Goebert - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
"trying to look good limits my life" and "everything I do always comes back to me" are two of my favorites.
I have always admired Stefan Sagmeister's ability to bring together a sincerity of purpose with a lot of (obvious) fun in the realization of his projects. I myself had a lot of fun reading and looking at this "book", after having seen the same titled show in New York City, detecting details that escaped me at the very crowded gallery, chuckling at the whimsy and imagination that went into it.
As in "Made You Look", Stefan wraps his pieces with delightful and sometimes very personal stories and anecdotes, which definitely adds to the overall impression that this is not just another design book, it's a great way to meet an artist/designer who has something to say, and who does it well.
I bought five copies at the show, they make great gifts. Maybe I should have waited for the amazon discount, though. Highly recommended.

What can I say... Feb. 16 2008
By Kuang Huang - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book just blew me away. The images are powerful, the sentences are inspiring, the formats are innovative and best of all, I had such fun changing the booklets inside to see new covers thru the laser-cut-out case. This is a true magical book.

Things I've Learned In My Life So Far. Feb. 24 2008
By Anwyl Ltd LLC - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
"Things I've learned in my life so far", represents Stefan's latest gift to the world and a rare glimpse into the mind and passion of one of today's most gifted designers and thinkers. Commanding interaction, masterfully crafted and produced, it touches, pokes, illuminates, challenges, and inspires even the most casual of reader. With each page Stefan treats us, as only he can, to a boundless buffet of evocative unfettered visual expression, striking all of the emotional chords in perfect pitch. Softly sprinkled throughout is a common sense perspective on life, art, and our world that is at once both poignant, and refreshingly warm. This is a must read publication, whether you're a senior executive, stay at home mom, instructor, young designer, artist, or a seasoned communications professional. Congratulations!

Disappointed with Things I Have Learned May 11 2008
By Design Student - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I was excited about this publication by one of the century's foremost design icons. Imagine my surprise when I opened the long-awaited package to discover that it is not a book at all! Just a short series of paper promotion-style vanity pieces containing entertaining truisms, but little substance. As a design student, I feel this is nothing but a waste of my hard-earned money. I expected a great deal more from Sagmeister. I will definitely be returning this "book." It is nothing more than a coffee table gimmick and a commercial sell-out.

another winner from Sagmeister March 3 2008
By Michael B. Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have Sagmeister's two other books, and this 15 pamphlet folio is another winner. It's exceptionally well produced (why am I not surprised). Having seen Stefan Sagmeister speak twice, I was delighted to see many of the images I've seen him use in his talks not only in this book but discussed in detail; both the ideas behind them and tales of their production.

Buy one for yourself, buy one for a gift - I can't imagine anyone who enjoys design or just thinking about living that wouldn't be delighted by this book.
