It is wonderfully designed, well written, easy to read and shows great work.
There is also a nice visual pace in the book's design, the use of large clear type balanced with captions, images and color.
"Dialog" is light, yet visually bold, playful, lively and personal with a sense of humor.
Easy for readers to understand how both (Ken & Leslie) have complimented each other to create wonderful work and not let individual pursuits or egos complicate mutual interests... but to give clients great results.
I especially liked the interplay between each with quotes, comments and personal observations about each others roles in the partnership. To have achieved success and survived for over 35 years is amazing! Most marriages aren't that successful so "Hats" off to both...
L&K are fearless in describing their mistakes and missteps too, making "Dialog" must reading for anyone who wants to follow in their footsteps -- or just appreciates good design.
