The Laws of Simplicity is a 100-page book I wrote just as the Apple iPod was starting to take off and while I was earning my MBA as a kind of “hobby.” LOS has been translated into more than 14 different languages -- and has now been around for over a decade. I never finished the sequel to LOS, but I wrote a short book on design, tech, and leadership as a form of therapy, entitled Redesigning Leadership.

Thank you for being curious about the Laws of Simplicity. A lot has changed in the technology world since I first wrote it, so I hope that you can use the parts (and Laws and Keys) that appear to be standing the test of time.

These days I see design, technology, and business headed in a set of new, interesting directions. Thus I'm working on something that's tentatively called that I hope to finish some day soon. Really soon. —JM
