What the various chapters lack in depth, the book more than makes up for in breadth by touching on a wide range of incredibly valuable topics from problem-definition to idea-generation to solution-finding.
As a non-designer, this book opened my eyes to the value of adopting a design perspective, and triggered numerous thoughts and questions that I had never before considered while providing me with a greater appreciation for topics related to form & function, user experience, and so much more.
I recommend this visually beautiful book to anyone who wants to change their paradigm and see the world around them through an exciting new lens. This book is a welcome new addition to my innovation and visual thinking library that I know I will reference often.
The downside, of course, is that you don't learn much about anything specific. No in-depth discussion; even the case studies left me wanting more. Fortunately the author lists resources with many of the topics that will help you learn more. Think about the book as a "Taste of Design" festival: sample a lot of things, decide the ones you really like, and at another time, in another place, dig in for a full meal.
