The book proposal reads very strong. There is certainly a need for a book that presents the content for students to explore. It is intriguing and I would certainly see if it would fit into my coursework for future courses.
The strength of the book would be its practical aspect, in comparison to other books available. It would be extremely useful for product led dissertations/projects following the completion of the course study. The proposed book is more like very well organized teaching materials for a specific course in smart/interaction fashion through the interface with technology. Therefore, it would be immediate teaching material to some institutes planning to open up a new course in related areas.
I agree with the rationale of the authors that available texts on this subject tend to lack a true academic focus on experiential learning.
I am enthusiastic about a book that can accomplish the goals the authors state: provide a conceptual framework for the evolution of new technologies and fashion design alongside a tutorial approach to providing technical background, guidance, inspiration and instructional support to teachers and students alike.
