“This book proves that Nigel Cross is truly one of the leading thinkers who are working hard to establish the body of knowledge for design.” ―Lee Kun-Pyo, Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology

Fantastic book on how great designers think and develop their 'skill set'. Reading it for an instructional design course but applies to any type of design
