It describes clearly on the UCD design in several phases. On how to apply it to my website, needs further study. ( )

Good basic overview of user experience design. Well laid-out and uncluttered. ( )

Read this for an information architecture class in library school. Might be useful for future information architects. ( )

A classic. Necessary reading for anyone who works on the web. Some of the recommendations may not be for everyone (a style guide can often be a hindrance rather than a help; the separation of the planes of user experience may lead to an overly waterfall-ish design/development process), and author Jesse James Garrett could have gone into greater detail in some places, but overall it's a good book.

It's rare to find a design or technology book so simply written. This book would be as useful to a developer or executive as it would to a designer. It made me think differently about some of the projects I was involved with over the past 10 years. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0735712026, Paperback)

Smart organizations recognize that Web design is more than just creating clean code and sharp graphics. A site that really works fulfills your strategic objectives while meeting the needs of your users. Even the best content and the most sophisticated technology won't help you balance those goals without a cohesive, consistent user experience to support it.

But creating the user experience can seem overwhelmingly complex. With so many issues involved-usability, brand identity, information architecture, interaction design-it can seem as if the only way to build a successful site is to spend a fortune on specialists who understand all the details.

The Elements of User Experience cuts through the complexity of user-centered design for the Web with clear explanations and vivid illustrations that focus on ideas rather than tools or techniques. Jesse James Garrett gives readers the big picture of Web user experience development, from strategy and requirements to information architecture and visual design. This accessible introduction helps any Web development team, large or small, to create a successful user experience.
