Book Review - Damn Good Advice by George Lois
Sabah Sheikh reviews Damn Good Advice (for people with talent!) by George Lois.
Starting today I will review a book every month. I'll give you guys the low-down on each of the important books you should be reading. And I'll announce which book is next on my hit list so if you care to, you can it read with me.
A small, compact book which seems visually enticing.
What I liked
This book is an easy read. Bullets of advice. An injection of Mr. Lois himself. His points not only advise what one should do in the creative arena but also in life as stated in point number 53, ‘Never, ever, work for bad people.’ But this doesn’t take away from the endless creative advice that he gives, which is all backed up with anecdotes of his. It’s really refreshing to be able to read the truth from a creative, in a day.
