Alan Fletcher

This is a great book for useless knowledge that ultimately might prove useful.

Daniel H. Pink

I was fascinated by Pink’s thoughts on intrinsic versus extrinsic motivation.

Jonah Lehrer

This book is worthwhile, despite the problems.

László Moholy-Nagy

The first design book I ever owned. It’s still influential today.

Kirk Varnedoe

Shows how breaking the rules can create a new art form. We now look at art in new ways.

Richard Kehl

Filled with wonderful insights and great quotes.

Malcolm Gladwell

In fact, all of Gladwell’s other books are noteworthy, too, particularly Outliers: The Story of Success.

Marvin Minsky

Very worthwhile read for anyone interested in how the mind works.

Jonah Lehrer

Excellent on exploring the thought processes behind how we make decisions.
