GLIMMER deemed “thoughtful, sparky and profound”
Random House created a unique cover for the paperback, which is my favorite version of the cover yet. (Visit the cover gallery to see the different covers so far. Stay tuned for the Korean version, which is just being designed now.) You can't see the special ink they used for the word "GLIMMER" on the black matte cover, but it's very glossy and almost-glow-in-the-dark (for anyone who needs a book that sheds its own light).
Here's the review (in both text and PDF):
“Warren Berger loves the art of design, and this book is about brilliant ideas. More specifically, it’s about the thinking behind the brilliant ideas. One designer spotted a wheelchair user in difficulty and had a flash of insight—the poor guy can’t talk to people face-to-face unless they are sitting down. And he can’t negotiate kerbs. So he designed a wheelchair that solved both problems. Somebody else designed a bicycle that is also a water-purifying machine—enormously helpful to a particular African community. Thoughtful, sparky and profound.”
