About This Book


Deconstructing Product Design is a book by William Lidwell and Gerry Manacsa, published by Rockport Publishers in the Fall of 2009. Its purpose is to explore the meaning of “good design” as it pertains to consumer products. Deconstruction here is an exploration of the form, function, and usability of these products by way of emotional response, objective analysis, and subjective commentary.

To that end, we want to know what you think and feel about these products.
