Advance Praise for In Pursuit of Elegance

"In Pursuit of Elegance is a fascinating intellectual romp that will change the way you look at your surroundings. As he takes readers from Jackson Pollock paintings to Dutch intersections to the secret menu at In-N-Out Burger, Matt May reveals the hidden elements beneath genuine innovation. This book is surprising, compelling, and, yes, extremely elegant."
--Daniel H. Pink, author of A Whole New Mind and The Adventures of Johnny Bunko

"As elegantly written as it is provocative, In Pursuit of Elegance makes a convincing--nay, worldview-shifting--argument that less is best."
--Ori Brafman, coauthor of Sway

"Enlightening. Makes a compelling case for doing more with less by optimizing the expenditure of one's assets and resources. That's something anyone can and should put into practice."
--Kevin Hunter, president, CALTY Design Research, Inc., Toyota Design Network

"What a masterpiece! The definitive guide to the 'less is more' mind-set. I meant to only take a quick glance at In Pursuit of Elegance, but once I started reading it, I couldn't stop. In a world where everything keeps getting more complicated and overwhelming, Matthew May shows us that if we start looking for things to take out, things to stop doing, and intelligent shortcuts, we will all be happier, do superior work, and live in a better world."
--Robert I. Sutton, Stanford professor and author of The No Asshole Rule
