A good introductory book for anyone trying to grasp the idea behind interaction design. Not opening completely new fields of research, but presenting the problems and some approaches to succeed in entering the area. ( )

A useful first introduction to interaction design, covering a lot of ground in a very light and readable way. Saffer characterizes the field, discusses the digital design materials and tools, outlines the phases of the design process, and even touches on more advanced topics such as adaptivity, service design, ethics and future challenges -- all very brief and approachable. I imagine that the book might whet the appetite of many readers to know more about interaction design. Too bad that there are no references or suggestions for further study.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0321432061, Paperback)

Explore the new design discipline that is behind such products as the iPod and innovative Web sites like Flickr. While other books on this subject are either aimed at more seasoned practitioners or else are too focused on a particular medium like software, this guide will take a more holistic approach to the discipline, looking at interaction design for the Web, software, and devices. It is  the only interaction design book that is coming from a designers point of view rather than that of an engineer.

This much-needed guide is more than just a how-to manual. It covers interaction design fundamentals, approaches to designing, design research, and more, and spans all mediums—Internet, software, and devices. Even robots! Filled with tips, real-world projects, and interviews, you’ll get a solid grounding in everything you need to successfully tackle interaction design.

Designing for Interaction is an AIGA Design Press book, published under Peachpit's New Riders imprint in partnership with AIGA.
