Format: Paperback
Having attended the recent WebVisions Conference in Portland Oregon (May 14 -18) one of the authors of this book, Russ Unger was a conference presenter (luminary.) Referencing the book, along with the title of his presentation "It's a Good Time to Be You," he made a compelling presentation describing the role of User Experience Design and Designers in this new era of smart phones, ipads and enhanced desktops. Coming from a somewhat backward web world where people in my position are still considered 'webmasters,' I found his presentation right-on and insightful and immediately went on to acquire the book before leaving the conference.

After sitting on it for a week, I finally thought I'd take a look, mostly to review materials from the conference. 2 days later I had read every word, cover-to-cover and found it not only well written, (there were 3 typos (grammar) - sorry Russ) conversational style, highly legible - a typographically well designed read, but addressing what I had been attempting to put into context in the field of web development and design. Great examples from the trenches, a good review of the players in this arena along with a healthy amount of reference websites and resource materials. The metaphors of the 3 categories for further exploration were cleverly listed as 'Surfing,' 'Snorkeling,' and 'Deep Diving.' Good stuff.

If you're at all curious about what all this UX stuff is about, this is a good start. Also, I believe if you're looking for a good summary as well as some real world examples of UX in the field, Russ and Carolyn Chandler have put together a valuable working resource/reference.

I have been learning UI/UX in my design program and this covers all the fundamentals plus more that we have been learning in class. This is a relatively new field for designers so I feel it is nice to pick up for a review or learn the basics.

Great book, recommended read to learn about a project life cycle from a UX point of view. Only thing is that websites examples are quite old

Was recommended to read this book from my design mentor at my company, and it definitely helps explain what is expected of you as a UX employee at a software company - great and easy read!

This is a great introduction to the field of UX. The text starts with a high level appraisal and then moves into some actual examples with enough substance not to bore an intelligent learner.

I use this book as a backbone in my UX classes taught at Seattle area design colleges. Great framework for young learners.

Format: Paperback
Time and time again, I hear from potential clients who want my company to "sprinkle a little UX dust" on some tired offering. Well, user experience (UX) isn't a condiment, it's the main course. Do it well, and your company will profit. Do it badly, and you will lose big time. This excellent book helps take some of the "indefinable fuzziness" off the concept of UX and makes it both understandable and operational. Buy it NOW!
