3.0 out of 5 stars (Novel, High Level) Experience Design (for the Bay Area), 8 May 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Experience Design (Paperback)
This book offers a difficult experience, literally. It flops uncomfortably in your hands. Don't try reading this on an airplane or train. Some text disappears into the spine and some is set in white against a grey and white background. Not very friendly. While the linear experience of a book is largely ignored - it's basically a set of narrated web links in book form. All of which wouldn't matter so much, if the author wasn't very consciously trying to "walk the talk" and make the book be an experience, as well as be about designing experiences.
Move past the form, and into the function of the book, and you find a tour de horizon of a fascinating subject. If you are a novice to this area, it will help open your mind to the possibilities of constructing experiential environments, giving you lots of space and examples for the succinct messages to sink-in. If you are not a novice, you'll find a fluff of high level messages without detailed analysis and an over concentration on the visual and the novel, and no recognition of global cultural issues in designing world-wide accessible experiences.
I wanted more from this book, but can see that for some it would a useful place to start their journey.
