From the Back Cover
Continual technological evolution has led to an explosion of new techniques in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) research. Research Methods in Human-Computer Interaction is a thoroughly comprehensive guide to performing research and is essential reading for both quantitative and qualitative methods. Chapters cover a broad range of topics relevant to the collection and analysis of HCI data, going beyond experimental design and surveys, to cover ethnography, time diaries, physiological measurements, case studies, and other essential elements in the well-informed HCI researcher's toolkit.
Written to support industrial and academic researchers, including faculty and students at both graduate and undergraduate levels, this book provides wide-ranging coverage of all research issues, supported by many real-world examples. It is intended to inspire the reader to do groundbreaking research, to change the way people think about human–computer interaction, to do something different, something noteworthy, and something important.

"This book is a must read for anyone in the field of Human-Computer Interaction. The multi-disciplinarian approach, housed in the reality of the technological world today, makes for a practical and informative guide for user interface designers, software and hardware engineers and anyone doing user research."
—Dr. Mary Czerwinski, Research Area Manager, Microsoft Research, USA
"Research Methods in HCI is an excellent read for practitioners and students alike. It discusses all the must-know theory, provides detailed instructions on how to carry out the research, and offers great examples. I loved it!"
—Professor Vanessa Evers, Professor, Human Computer Studies Lab, University of Amsterdam, the Netherlands
"The book is superb: comprehensive, clear, and engaging! This is a one-stop HCI methods reference library. If you can only buy one HCI methods book, this is the one!"
—Dr. Clare-Marie Karat, IBM TJ Watson Research, USA, and recipient of the 2009 ACM SIGCHI Lifetime Service Award
"A much needed and very useful book, covering important HCI research methods overlooked in standard research methods texts."
—Professor Gilbert Cockton, School of Design, Northumbria University, United Kingdom

Unfortunately, the Kindle version was not as good as the textbook. Some of the contents were misplaced, for example, contents of Table 3.1 were not properly shown in the Kindle edition (there were two columns in the table, but I could not differentiate the content of 1st column and 2nd column since all contents were mixed in one column). Other typos, such as in Table 4.11 (page 82 in the paperback textbook version) was very obvious and annoying. In my Kindle version, the printed table is similar as Table 4.10. Since this mistake raised question, I ran to check the mistake with the paperback version and it was confirmed that the Kindle version was not as good as the paperback version.
If only Amazon can repair these mistakes, it would be great for future Kindle version edition.
I am looking forward for the updated version :)
