About the Author

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.

Reviews

"Mike Monteiro's greatest hits foregrounds what he does best-bring a sense of vulnerability and an acknowledgment of ego to a profession desperately in need of it. And the obligatory new track, My People Were in Shipping, is a banger." -David Dylan Thomas, Design for Cognitive Bias


"This book is a confessional, an admission of guilt and longing and regret. It's the honest, sometimes confrontational conversation we need to have with each other collectively, as a nation, and can't or won't, for so many obvious reasons. More than anything else, it's a love letter to the America we could be-and an enraged, heartfelt indictment of the country we've become." -Queen Esther, singer, songwriter, historian


"Mike Monteiro is a writer and thinker of endless empathy. His anger is not aimed at you but for you. It is wide-ranging, directed at the world's (many) assholes and profiteers. But ultimately his anger is merely a cover for the love he has for everyone else. It's a good feeling to have him on your side." -Arjun Basu, Waiting For the Man


"Don't be fooled: Mike presents as angry, but these essays are actually about community, ethics, empowerment, optimism, hope, and-yes-love. "

- Dana Chisnell, Digital Services Expert, Obama White House
