Living with Complexity
Living with Complexity
by Donald A. Norman
Edition: Hardcover
Price: 12.21

4.0 out of 5 stars Another excellent book from Donald Norman, 30 Nov 2011
This review is from: Living with Complexity (Hardcover)
he does it again! Donald is just amazing when it comes to explaining Complex systems and how to create better products.
This book contains some stuff from his previous published books, but this book is more about Experience Design.

I don't recall his previous books containing much information about Experience Design. THIS book does that. I feel that Donald deliberately waited with explaining and describing experience design since he first wanted his audience to learn the basic principles of usability. When you know the basics of product design (usability), you can then build up your skills with experience design (user experience).

Excellent examples are provided as usual and the book is well written :)

Thumbs up yet again.


Advanced Web Metrics with Google Analytics
Advanced Web Metrics with Google Analytics
by Brian Clifton
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent practical book, 30 Nov 2011
Working as a Web Analyst, new to google Analytics, (used Sitecatalyst before) I found this book VERY helpful. My aim is to become a certified practioner and this book may be able to let me pass the exam.
The book has alot of theory (in a good way) and contains alot of practical screenshots, tagging instructions and recommendations and other useful hints.

Links to other useful websites and articles are also available. It is very well written and takes you through every possible Google Analytics scenario. I use this book daily and would say that this book is great for a novice as well for an advanced practitioner.

I would say: BUY IT! You won't regret!"

3.0 out of 5 stars Too much text and very few examples, 16 Aug 2011
There is too much text in this book. When I bought this book, I thought that there would be several images and screenshots of examples. There are few images of how a wireframe can look like.
More examples could be very useful.


User Experience Re-Mastered
User Experience Re-Mastered
by Chauncey Wilson
Edition: Paperback
Price: 30.47

4.0 out of 5 stars A book with alot of content taken from other books, 17 July 2011
This book has an excellent description of how to coduct a brainstorm, card sorting and how to create personas. Skecthing, Usability testws and contextual inquiries content are copied from other books such as Bill Buxton's Sketching for User Experiences, Mike Kuniavsky's Observing the User Experience.

It is a good handbook for those who are new to User Experience and Qualitative Research.

Steve Krug has written this book in plain English in order for everyone to understand web usability testing.
The book contains screenshots, which gives a better picture of the discussed themes.
