In 10 Simple Steps

By Paul Mason

  • Paperback
  • £8.99

Transform a fantasy design into a design for a real-world product in just ten simple steps!

Imagine someone gave you a sackful of money and told you to build a robot. You'd definitely want it to be the best robot in the world. But how do you go about designing THAT? Armed with your own imagination and some smart research, find out how you can transform a fantasy design into an actual dream product. You'll apply real-world design considerations to your ideas, refining your design to make it workable and achievable as it takes shape.

Biographical Notes

Armed with a MacBook Air and the miracle of the Internet, Paul lives and writes at a secret location somewhere on the west coast of Europe. You can be pretty sure that keeping his feet warm under the writing table is his one-eyed surf dog, Daisy.

As well as being a writer, Paul is a wanderer. He has lived in various countries - always in the high mountains, or somewhere near a good surfing beach. "Wherever I am, though, and whatever else I'm doing," he says, "I follow Ray Bradbury's advice: 'Write, every single day.'" Paul writes about many subjects, but his books are mostly to do with sports, the world's different peoples, places, and animals, or the weird and wonderful.
