Review

"Anyone who wants to learn about the basics of interaction design
should make this book their first stop!" -- Erik Stolterman, Ph.D., Indiana University, USA

"Exceptional book that helps bring design thinking and a human
perspective to the conceptualization and development of technology-based
products" -- Bill Buxton, Principal Researcher, Microsoft Research

"I value this text for the way it is so grounded in real examples
and actual human practices" -- Dr Toni Robertson, Interaction Design and Work Practice Lab, University of Technology, Sydney

"It is authoritative, eminently readable and thought-provoking for
students.Achieves a good balance between human, computing and design
aspects" -- Ann Blandford, Director of UCL Interaction Centre and Professor of Human-Computer Interaction

"The best basis around,both as a primer for students as an
introduction and as a resource for research practitioners" -- Pieter Jan Stappers, ID-StudioLab, Delft University of Technology

An exceptional book that helps bring design thinking and a human perspective to the conceptualization and development of technology-based products and systems. Bill Buxton, Principal Researcher, Microsoft Research -- Bill Buxton

The first edition of Interaction Design has been my text book of choice for general HCI courses at both undergraduate and Masters level for several years. It is authoritative, eminently readable and thought-provoking for students. It achieves a good balance between the human, computing and design aspects of the subject. The second edition strengthens the treatment of data gathering and analysis and approaches to evaluation, and introduces a welcome focus on affective aspects of interaction, reflecting recent research developments in the discipline. I am looking forward to working with this new edition." Ann Blandford, Director of UCL Interaction Centre and Professor of Human & Computer Interaction -- Ann Blandford

This new edition of Interaction Design is a welcome and timely support for those of us teaching and researching in the field. It fills in the gaps that were emerging in the first edition as new interactive technologies become available and older ones change so much. I value this text for the way it is so grounded in real examples and actual human practices, and for its strong design focus. It is a most useful and usable book. Dr Toni Robertson, Interaction Design and Work Practice Lab, University of Technology, Sydney -- Dr Toni Robertson

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!"

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.

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.
