I have to say I'm a fan of Steve Heller. And a little envious of his acquaintances... Gee, tell me somebody else who's friends with Sagmeister, Schwast, Glaser... this guy is incredible!

Regarding the book, Heller conscripted his friends to single out their favorite design piece. Some classics appeared, obviously, and some shady ones as well, what is great. As a designer, it's really fun to see what other designers like, and see how most of the choices relate to the actual work produced by them. Baantjes, for example, cites a 16th century mosque as her favorite piece of design - totally in line with her virtuoso style.

So, Steve, another one to you man, congrats!

this has one of the most diverse selections by designers that I have ever seen. It includes the typeface used in "The Prisoner", the Kodachrome package, the buffalo nickel, and so much more, as well as the expected, but welcome, pieces by Milton Glaser, Saul Bass, et al. I would like to have seen Rene Magritte credited for the original inspiration behind the CBS eye logo, then to Brodovitch, then to Golden, but this is not an art history book, that requires the full identification of visual sources. From the hundred or so books that Steven Heller has published, this must surely be in the top ten list of "most delighful."

Not a very good book. Poorly laid out, uninteresting designs and the artwork and fonts are boring. Funny, given the title of the book.
