Couldn't Put It Down - Simple and Effective!
Reviewed in the United States on May 12, 2016
Dan's new book was featured in a college magazine article last year. While the topic of his book sounded intriguing, I took extra interest since we both graduated the same year from the same upstate NY engineering school (not sure I can promote that school by name here, but it provided a great foundation for both of us). So I decided to make the small investment and, at a minimum, help out a classmate with their dream.
Usually when I read a book, I'm asleep in the first 5 pages and it takes me way too long to finish. But I picked up this book and couldn't put it down. After 20 years working for an engineering consulting firm, every few pages reminded me of a struggle I'd had during those 20 years and perhaps a better way I could have approached those issues. I now have his trademark Simplicity Cycle figure memorized and use it on a regular basis as I start new designs or work to refine previous designs. My plan is to buy a few more copies and send it to other alumni who also work in this firm (one of which also graduated in the same class) because I know they'll appreciate it and find value in it, too.
Great work, Dan!
