Booked Up: Pick “Click”

“Click” by Ori and Rom Brafman may not seem like a must-read for an in-house designer at first blush but it is, quite simply, THE book to buy and absorb during your holiday vacation.

The authors methodically illustrate and make a case for the need and power of establishing strong (“quick-set” as they put it) relationships with others. For us designers who constantly collaborate with our peers, clients and partners in multi-disciplinary teams, the ability to connect with others on an empathetic and deeply personal level is the determining factor of our professional success or failure. This book will fundamentally alter the way you perceive your working relationships and, more importantly, how you approach them.
