Book Description

9 Mar 2012 Voices That Matter
User experience design is the discipline of creating a useful and usable Web site or application that’s easily navigated and meets the needs of the site owner and its users. There’s a lot more to successful UX design than knowing the latest Web technologies or design trends: It takes diplomacy, management skills, and business savvy. That’s where the updated edition of this important book comes in. With new information on design principles, mobile and gestural interactions, content strategy, remote research tools and more, you’ll learn to:
  • Recognize the various roles in UX design, identify stakeholders, and enlist their support
  • Obtain consensus from your team on project objectives
  • Understand approaches such as Waterfall, Agile, and Lean UX
  • Define the scope of your project and avoid mission creep
  • Conduct user research in person or remotely, and document your findings
  • Understand and communicate user behavior with personas
  • Design and prototype your application or site
  • Plan for development, product rollout, and ongoing quality assurance

5.0 out of 5 stars Good book to have 21 Jun 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a very good book to have. There are many individuals out there who claims to be the Head of UX etc and I've heard it all but one thing I definitely noticed is that they know jack when it comes to delivering and managing projects. So for those of you who don't want to end up like them, buy this book and learn the foundations of Project Management, Process in UX before climbing too far up the ladder.

Written in easy to read, non-jargon terms, this is an excellent resource for starting out with UX design. It deals with all aspects of project management too, so very useful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good and Informative Read - Well worth buying 4 Jun 2012
By Gary D. Moses - Published on Amazon.com
Having attended the recent WebVisions Conference in Portland Oregon (May 14 -18) one of the authors of this book, Russ Unger was a conference presenter (luminary.) Referencing the book, along with the title of his presentation "It's a Good Time to Be You," he made a compelling presentation describing the role of User Experience Design and Designers in this new era of smart phones, ipads and enhanced desktops. Coming from a somewhat backward web world where people in my position are still considered 'webmasters,' I found his presentation right-on and insightful and immediately went on to acquire the book before leaving the conference.

After sitting on it for a week, I finally thought I'd take a look, mostly to review materials from the conference. 2 days later I had read every word, cover-to-cover and found it not only well written, (there were 3 typos (grammar) - sorry Russ) conversational style, highly legible - a typographically well designed read, but addressing what I had been attempting to put into context in the field of web development and design. Great examples from the trenches, a good review of the players in this arena along with a healthy amount of reference websites and resource materials. The metaphors of the 3 categories for further exploration were cleverly listed as 'Surfing,' 'Snorkeling,' and 'Deep Diving.' Good stuff.

If you're at all curious about what all this UX stuff is about, this is a good start. Also, I believe if you're looking for a good summary as well as some real world examples of UX in the field, Russ and Carolyn Chandler have put together a valuable working resource/reference.

4.0 out of 5 stars Covers the fundamentals 21 Aug 2013
By JiggaFoo - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have been learning UI/UX in my design program and this covers all the fundamentals plus more that we have been learning in class. This is a relatively new field for designers so I feel it is nice to pick up for a review or learn the basics.

Great book, recommended read to learn about a project life cycle from a UX point of view. Only thing is that websites examples are quite old

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book, use it for my classes at design colleges 30 Dec 2013
By tellous - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a great introduction to the field of UX. The text starts with a high level appraisal and then moves into some actual examples with enough substance not to bore an intelligent learner.

I use this book as a backbone in my UX classes taught at Seattle area design colleges. Great framework for young learners.
