Barking in the Yard

I just finished probably the best book I’ve ever read about what it’s like to be a designer, analyzing and discussing the every-day paradoxes and dilemmas that one encounters while doing the job. It’s American Mutt Barks in the Yard by David Barringer.

It’s really one long, sprawling essay, but very engaging and thought-provoking. The writing is lucid, funny, and intense. It’s probably the first design book I’ve ever read that I wished I’d written. Highly recommended.
