    1. This is a great resource for burgeoning and experienced designers who like to dig deeper. Inspirational, thought-provoking, good stuff.See my review with Local iQ magazine:local-iq/indexp?optExcerpt from review: "Maggie Macnab thinks we are all designers deep down if we just open our eyes and hearts to the best teacher possible: nature. She believes this so passionately that she’s written a book to encourage the masses to tap into their creative side and make the world a more aesthetically ple [...]

    2. I am not a designer, but I do design (slides). Geeky, but I enjoy crafting a set of slides that distills complex ideas into a compelling story that is simple yet communicates the essence. Looking for ways get away from traditional pyramid/architectural approach. Looking to learn from visual designer. This book teaches design philosophy and basics of how designer should think - which I found very helpful. Best line from the book"Simplicity is at the heart of complexity bec. complexity arises from [...]

    3. A definite reading material for students of design, this book has managed to weave interesting ideas originating from nature, and its impact in man-made designs. Readers would be elucidated with big but basic ideas behind everyday patterns around us, the obvious, and the ones that requires a certain degree of observation. From the relationship of 5 and 6-petaled flowering plants, to the application of various dimensions of symmetry, to the common concept of the Golden Ratio; the use of case stud [...]

    4. I never actually finished this book, though I thought it had a lot of potential. I couldn't get past the tone of the author. She is unashamedly self taught and has disdain for education. She clearly does not believe that any education in design is necessary ever. I actually sold this book back to .

    5. Maggie McNab has crammed this book full of thought-provoking and interesting illustrations of practice not only for designers but for anyone. It is not a read from beginning to end but a reference book I know I can pick up whenever I need to. It is great!

    6. Her description of science and history giving context to design principles has helped me look at work in a new way. I have already begun using metaphors and examples from the book in my work.
