Product Description

Review

"…a useful book and one that I will continue to recommend to my students…" (Interfaces, Spring 2003)

Review

"The best basis around for user–centered interaction design, bothas a primer for students as an introduction to the field, and as aresource for research practitioners to fall back on. It should belabelled ′start here′."
Pieter Jan Stappers, ID–StudioLab, Delft Universityof Technology

In the field of Interaction Design one book stands out, a bookthat has established itself at the core of the field. With this newedition, the authors have successfully strengthened that position.The new structure and content makes the book highly relevant andneeded in the field. Anyone who wants to learn about the basics ofinteraction design should make this book their first stop!"
Erik Stolterman, Ph.D., Indiana University, USA

This new edition of Interaction Design is a welcome and timelysupport for those of us teaching and researching in the field. Itfills in the gaps that were emerging in the first edition as newinteractive technologies become available and older ones change somuch. I value this text for the way it is so grounded in realexamples and actual human practices, and for its strong designfocus. It is a most useful and usable book.
Dr Toni Robertson, Interaction Design and WorkPractice Lab, University of Technology, Sydney

"The first edition of Interaction Design has been my textbook of choice for general HCI courses at both undergraduate andMasters level for several years. It is authoritative, eminentlyreadable and thought–provoking for students. It achieves a goodbalance between the human, computing and design aspects of thesubject. The second edition strengthens the treatment of datagathering and analysis and approaches to evaluation, and introducesa welcome focus on affective aspects of interaction, reflectingrecent research developments in the discipline. I am lookingforward to working with this new edition."
Ann Blandford, Director of UCL Interaction Centre andProfessor of Human Computer Interaction

"An exceptional book that helps bring design thinking and ahuman perspective to the conceptualization and development oftechnology–based products and systems."
Bill Buxton, Principal Researcher, MicrosoftResearch

This was a book that was on my reading list at Uni. I am really pleased I purchased this book (there is a new edition out). Its very useful guide to HCI and not only assisting my in my HCI module but in my dissertation to give me a good grounding to Usability principles.
Recommended if you are interested in this field, also look at Jakob Nielsen's HCI book range.

I'm glad that I decided to buy this book because not only did it helped me to pass my interaction design exam but it has really interesting information and I think this will be a book that I'll be using a lot during the next few years. I guess that it is mostly helpful for beginners like me because I don't know yet how much of it is applicable in the conception of commercial products but nevertheless I think that this book may be some sort of interaction design "bible" that we should keep nearby.

Format: Paperback
Good book for designer students and designers alike. It is recommended reading for the University course I am attending, and therefore I was expecting it to be heavy reading. It is not and it uses non academia language which makes it stand out from others. Can highly recommend this book as a read.
