By Ian J. Bellomy on January 15, 2010
Format: Paperback
Saffer provides a plain overview of the complexities of interaction design. The book is well suited for students or designers coming form other fields, describing basic concepts and methodologies that can help them grasp the outlines of the discipline.

Note: I removed my previous review. In hindsight, I held expectations about the content that were not warranted.

Good read.

I wish there were more case studies and "real world" application. I would recommend this book to anyone that wants a quick introduction to interactions design.

Format: Paperback
An overview or introduction, with little for anyone except raw beginners.

A fluffy, gee-whiz book, poorly edited. For example, do we need to know that a particular photo of a supermarket is in Kenya? 'One wonders' ?

Few if any examples of a particular interaction examined in detail.
