This fully illustrated book introduces various design principles that truly are universal. It explains 150 concepts of design pertaining to disciplines including architecture, software design, security, marketing, and productivity. Every entry is concise, but includes at least one specific example. There is little to no room for misunderstanding.
This is more of a dictionary than an encyclopedia. It is not being marketed as a manual and should not be mistaken for one. Good short read / bathroom book.
