Editorial Reviews

Review

As interaction design practitioners at all levels change jobs and get promoted, there are many new situations to face--many of which even a seasoned professional may not have encountered. Because with UCD there is often no one correct answer, there is a complexity with tradeoffs and solutions that require critical thinking and the application of the existing knowledge base. This book addresses this need by its method of eliciting the kind of critical thinking required, and will give readers the kind of experience they can only otherwise get with lots of time on the job.
