It's a very attractive book, plenty of pictures, prettily laid-out, very Web 2.0 design. But as I continued reading it, I found it increasingly unsatisfying and eventually disappointing. The interesting stuff on the subject takes about one third of the book. The rest reads like an infomercial or capability presentation for the author and his business. There is little real detail. I was looking for something tasty and filling, but ended up feeling like I had been taken to a fast-food restaurant.
I don't recommend it.
Float! delivered more than I expected. I like the illustrations & photos, history of major cities and especially chapter 5. Koen and David definitely have their finger on the pulse of the future.
