“A pocketbook of inspiration…. Coming across unexpected quotes or ones that hit a nerve makes a flip through the book great. A couple of my favorites includes Jan Kaplicky: ‘It's not a sign of creativity to have sixty-five ideas for one problem. It's just a waste of energy.' and Frank Gehry: ‘I don't know why people hire architects and then tell them what to do.' These and other quotes make the book a great gift.” —
