"Never Sleep" is a good story that explains the missing steps between being a great design student and making it as a working professional. I am a recent graduate and feel I am fortunate to link up with a few Art Directors and Creative Directors to get an in freelancing and landing a desk job at a small agency. But many of my peers, who are good graphic designers, they learned some web design as well, but didn't know how to make the leap to a working professional. This book is a nice story of success and most importantly the steps these young professionals took to make it in the design/advertising industry. A good companion book is karlssonwilker's "TellMeWhy".

My only real complaint is.. for graphic designers the book isn't designed very well. There should be larger photos showing off their work.

An honest and frank narrative about the journey these young designers made from student/designers to "real world" designers.

The sidebar articles from instructors, teachers, and professors is really powerful and adds a great deal to the stories.

Three things bother me about the book:

#1. The narrative is written in the third person. For people who are sharing such excruciating intimate details about their lives, it seems really odd to refer to "him" rather than "me" or "I".

#2. Vulgarity. Do we really need to let the "F" bomb fly so often?

#3 The intimate details are, well... too intimate. Do we know so much about their personal lives? This level of personal information distracts from the otherwise helpful and positive message.

I got this book for Christmas and was super excited to read it! I've read about half way through, and I'm not disappointed at all. The stories are thoughtful, funny, and both students/designers give great advice. I felt like I could really relate to both of their experiences, fears, goals, etc.. I do wish they showed off their work more in the book, but that's my only complaint. I feel like this is really inspiring!

Must read for graphic and interactive design students. This is like a road map of successful designer's journey. A lot of inspiration and motivation. Totally worth it.

Very good book, well printed and designed. The content is also very good, and really helps in understanding the vast world that graphic design is.
