"The best basis around for user-centered interaction design, both as a primer for students as an introduction to the field, and as a resource for research practitioners to fall back on. It should be labelled 'start here'." Pieter Jan Stappers, ID-StudioLab, Delft University of Technology -- Amazon.com

In the field of Interaction Design one book stands out, a book that has established itself at the core of the field. With this new edition, the authors have successfully strengthened that position. The new structure and content makes the book highly relevant and needed in the field. Anyone who wants to learn about the basics of interaction design should make this book their first stop!"
—Erik Stolterman, Ph.D., Indiana University, USA
This new edition of Interaction Design is a welcome and timely support for those of us teaching and researching in the field. It fills in the gaps that were emerging in the first edition as new interactive technologies become available and older ones change so much. I value this text for the way it is so grounded in real examples and actual human practices, and for its strong design focus. It is a most useful and usable book.
—Dr Toni Robertson, Interaction Design and Work Practice Lab, University of Technology, Sydney
"The first edition of Interaction Design has been my text book of choice for general HCI courses at both undergraduate and Masters level for several years. It is authoritative, eminently readable and thought-provoking for students. It achieves a good balance between the human, computing and design aspects of the subject. The second edition strengthens the treatment of data gathering and analysis and approaches to evaluation, and introduces a welcome focus on affective aspects of interaction, reflecting recent research developments in the discipline. I am looking forward to working with this new edition."
—Ann Blandford, Director of UCL Interaction Centre and Professor of Human–Computer Interaction
"An exceptional book that helps bring design thinking and a human perspective to the conceptualization and development of technology-based products and systems."
—Bill Buxton, Principal Researcher, Microsoft Research

This book is written in a style that makes it easy for the reader to get lost. Vocabulary words are not bolded. Essential ideas are not italicized. The authors use jargon from the human-computer interaction research field when regular vocabulary would suffice. The authors use vague examples that often state the obvious, and they don't do a good job of transitioning between ideas. As I read, I find myself skimming because the text is full of filler: many sentences are grammatically correct, but don't contribute any additional understanding to an adult human. (I realize that this review itself is vague, but I just want to give you my impressions).
In a way, that's not surprising. Based on the book, much of Human-Computer Interaction is obvious ideas, like "When you give an interview, you have to develop questions", or "Set goals for what you want to learn through data gathering", or "Video is a way to record data". But it's also true that when obvious things are placed in a theoretical framework, new insights may arise. So I don't fault the book too much for stating the obvious in many places.
Still, it astounds me that people have left 5-star reviews of this book. It amazes me that the publisher claims this book is "Popular with students and teachers alike". This is a book that forces you to parse dense text full of jargon and fluff. If you are a professor considering this textbook, please, look for another one. I refuse to believe that this is the best textbook the field has to offer.
