4.0 out of 5 stars Good for someone who knows nothing of User Experience Design, March 13, 2003
This review is from: The Elements of User Experience: User-Centered Design for the Web (Paperback)
There was not much in this book that I didn't glean from Jesse's one page PDF back in 2000. If you're a professional designer that is curious about this book, just check out the PDF. It's free, quick, and concise.
On the other hand, if you're someone that is new to UE, or maybe a designer struggling to get some core concepts across to a clueless team, client, or boss, then this book might nail what you're looking for. It's well-written, physically small, and not intimidating at all.
Jesse said it best in the intro: "This is not a book of answers. Instead, this book is about asking the right questions... This book will tell you what you need to know before you go read those other books."
This book provides no insight into techniques or methodologies for user experience design. It only brings to light that those techniques and methodologies exist.
Summary: Jesse, you wrote a good book. I just didn't pull much else from it past your excellent, excellent PDF a few years ago. Cheers.
