Simplicity is about subtracting the obvious, and adding the meaningful. — John Maeda
Hmm, yet another book on becoming more creative?
I can’t wait to read it. Finished it up on Christmas Eve.
I haven’t worked on lettering enough to be able to tell whether I’m into it or not. But, I really enjoy her pieces of wisdom on work ethics, processes and tactics throughout the book. I read it with a pencil and lined words, phrases and sentences I loved. Needless to say, I made lots of lines.
It is a how-to writing book, teaching principles and techniques to whoever likes to take her or his writing to the next level. It’s exactly what I need.

“Becoming Steve Jobs” is a great book. As the authors Rick Tetzeli and Brent Schlender say, this is a growth story about Steve Jobs — how he grew from a two-person team to managing a company that has thousands of employees. There are a lot of books and articles depicting him as a complete genius and at the same time, a complete jerk. From this book, I saw his soft side, his care about his employees, friends, as well as his and others’ families.
