As the world grows beyond the understanding of any one Renaissance man or woman, Donald Norman's missive is well timed. Every product designer is an interaction designer whether they want to be or not.(Robert Blinn Core77)
The world, it seems, is becoming ever more complex. While some view this as a problem, Don Norman sees it as an opportunity. In Living with Complexity, he brilliantly shows how, in a partnership between users and designers, we can tame the ravages of complex technology and complex situations to create experiences that work.(Tim Brown, CEO and president, IDEO)
... you will like Norman's calm voice, keen observations and sage counsel about what could be done. Read his book.(Geoffrey K. Pullum Times Higher Education)
This book seems a little too quickly written, and would have benefited with more time and attention.
Living with Complexity is the latest book from Don Norman, one of the most forward thinking and influential designers in the world.
Norman's other books may be better for those who have more experience or a professional interest in design.
