"Matthew May explores why certain events, products, and people capture our imaginations and our loyalty. Defining elegance as the elusive combination of unusual simplicity and surprising power, he pinpoints the four key elements that characterize it--seduction, subtraction, symmetry, and sustainability--illustrating why what's "not there" often matters more than what is. He also sheds light on the need for elegance in design, engineering, physics, art, urban planning, sports, and work."--Container.
