Editorial Reviews

Review

Interface device design and computer science theory often seem worlds apart, where each challenges the constraints and demands of the other. This unique book is a counterpoint. Thimbleby clearly shows how hard-core computer science concepts contribute to the clarity and precision of device design, leading in turn to better design critique and redesign.

(Saul Greenberg, Professor and iCORE/SMART Industrial Research Chair, University of Calgary)

I strongly recommend this book to a wide audience: students, instructors, and especially project managers and designers who are not thoroughly familiar with the foundations of computer science or HCI.

(Edgar R. Chavez Computing Reviews)

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Part of my job is to analyze customer needs for enterprise web applications and then translate the needs into requirements for developers to implement. I have been enjoying this book and its treatment on taking computer science approach to design better user experience. The author Harold Thimbleby has done a good job in presenting the material in a very engaging approach.
