This is a great book. I haven't read it all yet but am impressed at the wide range of inspirational design case studies. Jennifer Hudson has chosen interesting designs that vary from craft to true mass production and all of them seem to have a good reason for being in the book.

Very very good. 50 is a lot of products, and they are all explained very well with good text and images. Not superficial and it focus on something new in design books: the ways that designers find to achieve a certain form.

This book shows what a designer really want to see, that is not the concept isolated or the process within the corporate team, but the cases where the designer used the process to inovate creating good product design.

Pretty good book, but there is a better one.

This book essentially gives you a definition of each process, but does not go into any real depth on how to execute the process. It leaves you with an impression of "ok, so now what?"

If you want a good visual dictionary of processes and are willing to do more research to learn how to 'do it' then this is a good product.

Photos are excellent and overall production of the book is quite good.

I would recommend "Manufacturing Processes for Design Professionals" as a better choice. While it too is a good 'visual dictionary' it has more meat to it and more processes covered.
