Kudos to the authors and the professional community of contributors for this book specifically aimed at designers. A Designer's Research Manual conveys information in a clear and readable manner with concise text, helpful graphics and relevant international case studies.
It explains why research is important and goes on to explain the different methods of research, but not in such great detail as to make you doze off mid-sentence. The information is brief, to the point, and very well laid out.
On the whole, a very good read. Almost half the book is dedicated to case studies that portray how research influenced the design direction (This, I particularly enjoyed).
For practising students or seasoned designers, this book is great to have around for quick and useful information into research strategies for any project.
The book covers research techniques which are appropriately laid out periodically as you would do them in a real life situation.
One thing I feel like also mentioning is the size: not too big and not too small, light and easy to carry around - just right to have hanging inside your bag whenever you are stuck on where to go next with a project.
