Editorial Reviews


Advance Praise (1 of 3): 
"Andrew takes us on a journey from not knowing to knowing; he asks good, interesting questions about the role context plays in the design and architecture of understanding." 
 -- Richard Saul Wurman
"...a thoughtful, well-researched and insightful book, full of key ideas to help you navigate the connected future." 
-- Dave Gray, Author, The Connected Company
"...come away better situated in a world remade (but not replaced) by technology, and get ready to give it better architecture." 
-- Malcolm McCullough, author of Ambient Commons and Digital Ground 

Advance Praise (2 of 3): 

"...helps us perceive, make sense of, and engage with the contexts that surround us..." 
-- Louis Rosenfeld, Author, Information Architecture for the World Wide Web; founder, Rosenfeld Media 

"...masterfully makes the case for meeting users where they are, and putting context in its proper place: at the center of making meaningful design." 
-- Dana Chisnell 
"...A necessary read ... for those who create products and services spanning the digital and the physical, where context is everything."
 -- Andrea Resmini, PhD, Author, Pervasive Information Architecture 

Advance Praise (3 of 3):  
"...a door to knowledge that will allow an entire generation of digital designers to more properly consider the context in which their work is used..." 
-- Abby Covert, Author, How to Make Sense of Any Mess 
"...a rigorous and wide-ranging framework for thinking about how we perceive and interact with our linguistic and digital environments, based on cutting edge cognitive science... the result is an invaluable guide..." 
 -- Andrew D. Wilson, PhD, Senior Lecturer in Psychology, Leeds Beckett University
