*BEWARE!*

It is amazing how all the 5 star reviews were left on the exact same day, and then no more 5 star reviews were left in the following 4 months.

I spent so long confused as to how I could find this book so bad when there we so many ‘glowing’ reviews, that by the way. don’t actually make correct reference to the topics in the book.

The performance is awful, she sounds like a robot, miss-emphasising words and getting intonations wrong all the time, it’s so hard to listen.

There’s barely any real content to this book. I’ve listened to an hour so far, and could probably not tell you more than 2 things about the book if you had me at gun point!

I’m gutted that I got fooled into wasting a credit on this, as I was interested by the topic.

Not really much information.

Not much tangible information to action on and learn. Plenty of references from other books with little observations or use.

Good job it was on offer.

Incoherent book

Incoherent book. Sounds like a bunch of unrelated articles. Performance is also poor. Didn't like it at all.

Not for Experienced Designers

This is more for people trying to start Design thinking. Not for anyone experienced to develop Design thinking theory

Not for Product Managers & Designers

Struggled with this book because I was looking for a quick overview of Design Thinking. While it does go deep into various topics involved with Design Thinking, I found that lots of the detail is not helpful to a product manager or designer who is looking to understand concepts in order to apply techniques. This reads more like a dissertation or research paper on the topic. Not what I was looking for.

Worth 100% the complimentary deal

An uneven book, which will by no means enable you to “master” design thinking.
The initial overview and many definitions are quite good but the advice on launching a business is unnecessary and a waste of time.
The performance is subpar, with a nice voice but elementary mistakes showing the reader sometimes has no idea what she’s reading — and the editor/QA is AWOL. ParadiGm?!

Should be call larger overview of design thinking vs mastering.

This is more overview... big picture rather than mastering. Chapter 15 starts to dive a little deeper but still very service lev

Makes no sense at all

I spent almost 2 hrs listening to the book and couldn’t understand what this book is all about. There is no structure, no concept nothing. Just a collection of thousands of words. Very disappointed.

The authors do a great job of breaking down various skills and scenarios that relate to strategy and strategic decision-making. They do it in a fun and engaging way.

Truly decent!!

So far this book is actually what I needed. Splendid clarifications of pretty much every game possible. Best of all, it permits you to think as far as a game scholar.
