Design is One

I recently looked through this book - http://snurl.com/g3h87

There was a theory that struck a chord with me. I still cannot decide whether I agree or disagree.

"the basic concept is that the discipline of design is one, and if you can design one thing, then you can design everything. The methodology is the same no matter what the subject"

I study Industrial Design at Uni and would like to think that I could branch into many aspects of design, such as fashion or web design.
so that's where I agree with this point, however I feel as though someone in web design would lack an understanding of how to design a product.

I think it all stems down to design education, there are similar structures throughout all courses of design that I've seen within the University I attend, and with collaboration on projects I feel like I am passing on techniques,skills and insight that I have developed to make myself a better designer.

How does everyone feel about this and does anybody have any other literature I could read through related to the subject?

(PS - More of the book can be read online here - http://snurl.com/g3i11)
