I finally got his book :) it's bilingual (english & chinese). That book is so unique and very enjoyable to read. He writes about his design philosophy and explains a general design process (useful for first year students), but the most interesting part is the collection of his amazing sketchwork (ideation sketches,concept sketches, storyboards and exploded views) with additional comments. His visual communication skills are superb.. I have never seen such strong sketch skills before. So i think it's a must read for designers who want to improve their sketching abilities, cause looking to his work is certainly learnful..at least to me.

I worked with Carl in the U.S. a few years back, he has a reputation as the best of the best, his techniques and sketches influenced a lot people. I was really young at the time and was highly influenced by his style as well, he is one of the best I've ever seen...
