"For anyone thinking about the trajectory of their design career in the midst of continual technological change, How They Got There is an eye-opening playbook full of valuable lessons." Always great to hear about others' journeys to mastery. In this case, this looks like it'd be great for aspiring designers.

Congrats, @khoi. I have a very simple question: why did you write a book?

Thanks @rrhoover! Two part answer… I wrote a book because I love books. The process of taking a set of ideas and hammering them into a form that informs and entertains and that is deliberate and intentional enough to hopefully stand the test of time…all of that is really powerful, I think. It's different from the kind of writing that we do on the Internet; not necessarily better, but different and valuable in its own way. I wrote _this particular_ book because it's exactly the book that I would have wanted when I was starting out. The stuff about how people forge their own careers has always been the part of any interview that has interested me the most because it's a combination of practical advice and insight into a person's character. So basically, I just really wanted this book to exist, so I wrote it!
