" Designing Interactions offers multiple interfaces in its own right. It"s not just a well-designed, nicely indexed book, with a heft that strains the tendons (the back of my review copy cracked after only a few hours of gentle use), but also an enclosed DVD with interviews, and a website (designinginteractions.com) that includes a weekly downloadable chapter. There"s an inherent lesson in this arrangement, which is the value of choice. The very randomness of Moggridge"s archive shows the truest quality of good interaction design: personality." I.D. Magazine
"This is one hell of a book.... Part history lesson, part computer science thesis, part design education, part personal design philosophy, it is fascinating, inspirational, occasionally baffling, and often hilarious." Helen Walters BusinessWeek.com
"This will be the bookthe book that summarizes how the technology of interaction came into being and prescribes how it will advance in the future. Written by the designer who was there, who helped make it happen, who pioneered the digital revolution. Essential, exciting, and a delight for both eyes and mind." Don Norman , Nielsen Norman Group and Northwestern University, author of Emotional Design
