The book is a collection of interviews with renowned designers contrasting their career trajectory on how they started compared to where they are now.
It's a fascinating, inspiring read. While this is design focused, I can't help but feel that anyone in any creative field would deeply benefit from reading it. Musicians, painters, architects, writers, carpenters, product engineers could all draw inspiration from it.
Hell, even if you don't call yourself a designer, maybe it will inspire you to take a Lynda.com course and brush up on your Photoshop skills. I know it did for me.
