"In this excellent new book, Rex Hartson and Pardha Pyla bring UX (user experience-the broad view of what started out as usability and usability testing) up to date…This comprehensive book brings together and updates so many of the books that have been part of any UX practitioner’s library that it could be the one book you now need to understand and practice UX design."--Technical Communication, August 2013 "This book is destined to become a primary reference for just about anyone involved in the development of interactive products of almost any kind. It addresses both the design process and design principles and goes beyond traditional usability to address all aspects of the user experience. The authors have distilled two careers’ worth of research, practice and teaching into a concise, practical and comprehensive guide for anyone involved in designing for the user experience of interactive products."- Deborah J. Mayhew, Deborah J. Mayhew & Associates "The UX Book covers the methods and guidelines for interaction design and evaluation that have been shown to be the most valuable to students and professionals. The students in my classes have been enthusiastic about the previous versions of this text that they used. This book will benefit anyone who wants to learn the right way to create high quality user experiences. Like good user interfaces, this text has been refined through multiple iterations and feedback with actual users (in this case, feedback from students and faculty who used earlier versions of the book in classes), and this is evident in the final result".-- Brad A. Myers, Professor, Human-Computer Interaction Institute, School of Computer Science, Carnegie Mellon University "The UX Book takes on a big challenge: a comprehensive overview of what it takes to design great user experiences. Hartson and Pyla combine theory with practical techniques: you leave the book knowing not just what to do, but why it's important."-Whitney Quesenbery, WQusability, author, Global UX: Design and research in a connected world "This textbook on front end computer programming provides designers and programmers with practical information on the design of user interfaces that definitively enhance the user experience (UX). Topics discussed include general principles of UX design; contextual analysis; constructing design-informing models; UX goals, metrics, and targets; rapid evaluation methods; UX methods for agile development processes; and integration with general software engineering. Chapters include clear objectives, color illustrations, case studies, interviews with practitioners, and chapter exercises."--Reference and Research Book News, Inc.
