101 Things I Learned Home
What to know. How to think. Where to start.
in Product Design School
NEW!  From the Crown Division of Penguin Random House


An engaging introduction to a vast field whose work surrounds us every day.

Product Design is not art, engineering, or craft, even as it calls for skills and understandings in these areas and more—psychology, history, cultural anthropology, physics, ergonomics, materials, marketing, and manufacturing. This accessible guide provides an entry point into this vast field through 101 brief, illustrated lessons in such topics as:
• why all design is performed in relation to the body
• why every product is part of a system
• the difference between being clever and gimmicky
• why notions of beauty are universal across cultures
• how to persuade through both storytelling and argument

101 Things I Learned® in Product Design School is for  design students, professionals, and anyone wishing to better understand this complex field.
