How to Think Like a Great Graphic Designer by Debbie Millman. I've read the first 60 pages and I'm hooked. On every second page I've found something that I've wanted to highlight, or share and I very rarely feel that even once in a whole book. The title so far is quite deceptive. The book is really about how creative people think, not so much about graphic design. It doesn't feel like a How To book either, just gives great insight into their thought processes. One this morning in particular feels appropriate for photography.
talent is the implemented desire to excel

Yup, desire matters. Opportunity matters. But just doing it is what really matters.
