praise for a fine line "A breath of turbo-charged fresh air that doesn't regurgitate the ego-maniac CEO's selective memory or an outside expert's misinterpretations. Hartmut explains innovation through the lens of design, and it's about time we gained his valuable perspective." —Guy Kawasaki, former chief evangelist, Apple and co-founder of Alltop.com "At Flextronics, we fell in love with Hartmut and frog, and their passion for bringing crazy great designs and design processes into the forefront of great product companies. We used their expertise to help our customers, many of the greatest product companies in the world, including Apple, HP, Cisco, Microsoft and others. It is a credit to Hartmut that in the midst of a shocking global recession, frog still sets quarterly revenue records. Theirs is a unique and fascinating story." —Michael Marks, partner, Riverwood Capital LLC and former CEO, Flextronics "Hartmut's new approach to design is felt in every room in every house in every country and in every business around the world. He proved that thoughtful design is not only good for people but is good for business—and that both are interlinked. I have been fortunate to have observed first hand his impact at Sony, Apple, and HP?and have learned so much from him. He is an unsung hero of our times! A Fine Line is a must-read for designers and business people alike." —Satjiv Chahil, senior vice president, Hewlett-Packard "A fascinating, breathtaking, and exemplary insight into a success story that never had so much topicality, and so much informative potential as just now. Esslinger offers an honest and encouraging portrait of the incredible power of the business and design alliance. A Fine Line is a handbook of design expertise and the art of business at its best, showing a variety of radical solutions and fresh new ideas." —Professor Dr Peter Zec, president, ICSID and founder, red dot awards

A Fine Line -- --Takes you through the bipolar experience, and out the other side -- -- Insanity struck Eileen Walton midway through law school. She never saw it coming. Her life was disrupted; her mind was ripped apart. When she finally recovered, a suffocating depression followed. It took her a year before she could start to slowly rebuild her life, grateful that the episode was over --until it happened again. As additional episodes continued to come, she learned the warning signs --the euphoria, the increased energy, the racing thoughts. She knew that delusions, paranoia, and terror would come next. After that would come depression; she knew that too. In her memoir, she tells how she learned to use the qualities of love to determine what is delusional and what is real. "If it isn't loving, it isn't real," she would repeat to herself when paranoia threatened. In her later psychotic episodes, she discovered that the same consciousness that brings her insanity also brings her a world where paranormal experiences abound --where precognition is frequent and heightened intuitive powers are the rule. This is a spirited story of stark reality and optimism, extraordinary forces and ordinary life, and the power of belief over lies.
