For ten years or so I've been putting down my thoughts on design, and technology, and ethics. Essays after essay. Some of those essays get turned into talks, some of them get blown out into books, but the essay has always been the native form for all these. I am, at heart, an essay writer. I love the form. It's long enough to be nuanced, and short enough to get it out immediately. All the essays here have already appeared somewhere. Some might be familiar. But I thought it'd be nice to get them all in one book. Cause man I love holding a book, and flipping through it, and writing notes in the margins. Also, I added a bunch of footnotes to the essays. So that's new.

The book is broken up into three sections: the more recent stuff on ethics, responsibility, and race; a section where I throw rocks at Silicon Valley; and a more practical section about design basics, which is where this whole mess got started. I just wanted to help you get paid, remember that? Lordy, it's been a journey.

About the Author
Monteiro, Mike: - Mike Monteiro is the co-founder and design director of Mule Design, an interactive design studio whose work has been called delightfully hostile by The New Yorker. He's written four books- Design Is a Job, You're My Favorite Client, Ruined by Design, and the one you're holding now, which you hopefully paid for. He's not as smart as his wife, or as charming as his dog, or as brave as his daughter. He's pretty much given up on tech and is considering a future as a lighthouse keeper or record store owner, or maybe opening a record store in a lighthouse.
