Included in Fast Company's "14 most important books for designers to read right now."

"Presented in practical, approachable prose, it offers context, methods, and case studies sourced from the medical community, such as a hand-held device for detecting breast cancer or a clothing line with functional openings that people with chronic illnesses can wear during medical procedures. Graphics by Lupton's longtime collaborator Jennifer Tobias bring the ideas to life."
-Architectural Digest

"Ku's medical perspectives and Lupton's sensitivities to the history and future of design take the reader on an entertaining journey that is not only fun, with one-liners inserted with surgical precision, but, with an abundance of case studies to illustrate their message, it is also very educational."
-Health Environments Research and Design Journal

"The healthcare system is ripe with challenges and opportunities for innovation. The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted this issue more than ever. If you're a designer working in healthcare, or interested in understanding how design is being used in a healthcare context, this book is for you. The book is filled with real-world projects and examples of applying design to health."
