Excellent for Aspiring Interaction Designers August 4, 2011
by
Dan does a wonderful job putting a stake in the ground on interaction design. He walks through the history and the breadth of designing in today's world. The textbook walks through the roles and practices that are needed for solid product design. Part of the textbook is interviewing the thought leaders and practitioners. I have been anxiously waiting for this textbook and it has met my expectations.
