See what really goes into every aspect of car design.

People have never been more broadly aware of design as a concept, or as something that fits into their everyday lives.

Even the simplest of consumer products compete to offer something that will better catch the public’s eye and reflect the taste and perceived lifestyle of each individual.

Like all design, car design is complex subject. It's one in which many people have an interest - and not just gearheads.

Every part of a car represents myriad decisions by the design team ruled by engineering, aesthetics, human interface, and emotion. Speed Read: Car Design helps the reader to understand the how's and whys of that design process, offering an engaging review of history, theory, key concepts, and key designers. It’s a book for car enthusiasts, design fans, and anyone with a desire to better understand why our wheeled world looks the way it does.
