About the Author

Written by Ben Shneiderman, a leader in the field of HCI and Founding Director (1983-2000) of the Human-Computer Interaction Laboratory (HCIL) at the University of Maryland at College Park. Co-authored by Catherine Plaisant, Associate Research Scientist and Associate Director of HCIL.

More About the Author

BEN SHNEIDERMAN (http://www.cs.umd.edu/~ben) is a Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Founding Director (1983-2000) of the Human-Computer Interaction Laboratory (http://www.cs.umd.edu/hcil/) at the University of Maryland. He was elected as a Fellow of the Association for Computing (ACM) in 1997, a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) in 2001, and a Member of the National Academy of Engineering in 2010. He received the ACM SIGCHI Lifetime Achievement Award in 2001.

Ben likes skiing, hiking, biking, and working with his students on new ideas. He developed the interface idea for the link with grad student Dan Ostroff in 1984, pioneered information visualization concepts with Christopher Ahlberg (who went on to found Spotfire, based on these concepts), and developed the treemap concept, which was first implemented by grad student Brian Johnson.

Current projects focus on electronic health records and network visualization. He believes computer science should be more directly devoted to making the world a better place.

Format: Hardcover
No other book in the field of HCI (Human-Computer Interaction) is as broad, has so many useful guidelines and is a better bibliography as Shneiderman DTUI (Designing the User Interface).

DTUI will *not* give you in-depth knowledge of every aspect of HCI, because that's an impossible task for a single book.

Instead, DTUI focuses on giving you an overview and understanding of central HCI concepts coupled with useful everyday tips, rules and guidelines.

The passionate HCI student will in DTUI also discover a comprehensive guide to the books and articles that have shaped HCI throughout the years. (Reading the HCI body of work, you will soon discover than DTUI is one of the most cited books in the field, an indication of how influential it is.)

To teachers in search of a introductionary HCI book for their classes, I strongly recommend DTUI. "Interaction design" by Jennifer Preece, et al. is another fine book that's has less theory in favor of the practical.

As most reviewers have noted, this is a classic and must-have book in the field of HCI. This fourth edition--newly published in March 2004--has been thoroughly revised to include much material related to the WWW. It does appear that Shneiderman took care to go through each chapter and remove less relevant material in favor of including new topics that have come up since the last edition was written.

used for school, purchased at a discount rate here on amazon so it was certainly worth the money and it served it's purpose.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I got this book since it was required for a UI class. I read it cover-to-cover before class started to get ahead, and was thoroughly disappointed. There are a few interesting things, but nothing a good professor won't cover in just as much detail in class (and will likely do so in a more useful, applied manner). Quite honestly, this is a boring read lacking quality information, and I have since sold the book. Compared to my love of the networking, os and compiler books, my appreciation for this book is nil. I keep Software Engineering 8 around since it is a useful resource in many ways, and even that book trumps this UI book by far. I would personally avoid buying this book if possible.
