How Design Makes The World: Typos and corrections?

Did you read How Design Makes the World? Thanks. I’m glad you did.

If you found any any typos or mistakes along the way, I apologize. But I’m asking you to report them here so they can be corrected in a future edition.

The first edition of the book has 130+ footnotes, 60+ recommendations and dozens of properly attributed photo and media credits. I work hard to get it right, but alas mistakes do happen.

Please leave a comment, and a page # if possible. Much appreciated.

Here are the known issues:

Print edition

  • pg 41, Hundertwasser was Austrian, not German
  • pg. 80 –  had a great a great
  •  154 – 5th line from the bottom, “People hate traffic when that are in it…” – should be they
  • p. 117 “…going to difficult”
  • p. 99 “insights that makes”
  • p. 126 “Or their low cost” (not an error, but wordy)
  • p. 151 “devil”
  • p. 153 “business continue”
  • 154 “when that are in it” 
  • p. 157 “guide to us” 
  • pg. 180 – all questions should appear on own line
  • Pg. 188, Maurice Sy -> Marice Sy

Unique to Kindle / Digital

  • pg. 50 / Chapter 7 – fonts missing (Kindle only)
