    A little dated and focused on the web but the underlying principles are still relevant.

    I read this for the Copenhagen UX Book Club I liked the practical approach of the book This makes it a book that you don t just read once, but refer to again and again I recommend it to anyone in a place where there is no usability or user experience person in place That may mean that no one knows much about UX, so this book can be your guide to teaching them the purpose of usability and the need to think about usability I think technical communicators will also find it quite valuable for m I read this for the Copenhagen UX Book Club I liked the practical approach of the book This makes it a book that you don t just read once, but refer to again and again I recommend it to anyone in a place where there is no usability or user experience person in place That may mean that no one knows much about UX, so this book can be your guide to teaching them the purpose of usability and the need to think about usability I think technical communicators will also find it quite valuable for much the same reasons It is also useful for a tech comm person transitioning to UX work.The book s design made it easy to navigate and read That s something I am grateful forand , especially when it is a reference book that you want to revisit many times.Because I have only read it once, I refer you to the blurbs on the book forinfo I will be digesting some of this stuff over the coming years I found it valuable and perhaps a 5 star book for my purposes However, I haven t lived enough of the examples to know whether it holds true Therefore, I am a bit cautious and give it a 4 I will say that no one in my book club, not even the super experienced people, could find anything negative to say about it Well, theI think about it, I must give it a 5 It s great for beginners and advanced practitioners of UX

    Undercover User Experience Design by Cennydd Bowles and James Box is a great thorough starter manual for a broad audience of junior to regular UX practitioners and those shifting into this field The manual covers not only the undercover techniques, but the whole range of UX methods and approaches, following through all of the design stages, taking the perspective of both the innie and an outie.I think that Cennydd and James went a little too broad and got too much info into the book witho Undercover User Experience Design by Cennydd Bowles and James Box is a great thorough starter manual for a broad audience of junior to regular UX practitioners and those shifting into this field The manual covers not only the undercover techniques, but the whole range of UX methods and approaches, following through all of the design stages, taking the perspective of both the innie and an outie.I think that Cennydd and James went a little too broad and got too much info into the book without providing finer details andexamples of undercover work.All good though an invaluable resource I wish I had on the table back a few years ago.The title of the book should better match the broader scope of it

    stretches a good but simple idea undercover UX fairly thin and only provides rudimentary coverage of fundamental IA UX concepts, e.g prototyping, low vs hi fidelity wireframes, sketching, etc Concepts that are covered in muchsubstantial detail in many other UX books, e.g the polar bear book A surprising amount of time spent talking about working with different departments roles toward end of chapter A lot of that can surely just be consolidated Overall, didn t really see this stretches a good but simple idea undercover UX fairly thin and only provides rudimentary coverage of fundamental IA UX concepts, e.g prototyping, low vs hi fidelity wireframes, sketching, etc Concepts that are covered in muchsubstantial detail in many other UX books, e.g the polar bear book A surprising amount of time spent talking about working with different departments roles toward end of chapter A lot of that can surely just be consolidated Overall, didn t really see this book as adding much new to the UX conversation

    Great for practical advice, but not very deep in regards to theory It had a lot of basics that are wonderful for its intended audience someone just starting out in UX The value in this book for me was its list of further reading material at the end of each chapter and the plethora of online resources and tools it mentioned throughout.

    Practical, pragmatic, concise and well illustrated approach to UX under real world constraints If you ve ever been in an environment hostile to wasting time with usability testing, this book is perfect.If you wanttheory, I d recommend Elements of UX , by Garrett.

    This is an excellent and above all practical guide to user experience design The book concentrates on the low hanging UX fruit that most products and companies just don t bother to do Great book for anyone who builds products or touches user experience.
