The book's greatest strength is approaching the subject through the
lens of design thinking. There is a need to emphasize design
thinking at early foundation levels in interior design. -- Lee

I think the distinguishing factor of this book is the way it addresses design thinking and places it first and foremost in the book. This makes the book unique. -- Mary Ann Frank, Indiana University - Purdue University, USA
The book is well organized and introduces topics that can later be covered in-depth in other courses. The design thinking approach is definitely a strength and the main reason to adopt this textbook. -- Mandy Berdami, Mississippi College, USA
