I suspect this is one of those books that warrants a second read or finds greatest value as a springboard for projects in progress. In first read, I found value and left a lot of bookmarks, but didn't come away feeling overwhelmed with ideas and enthusiastic urgency. ( )

A light-touch guide to the ins-and-outs of website design projects from a UX perspective. It's geared firmly toward junior staff or those unfamiliar with user experience design.

There's some good stuff in there, but it's very basic, and if you've ever worked at a web agency in a UX or consultancy role, it's unlikely you'll take a lot away from this book. ( )

“If you are a young designer entering or contemplating entering the UX field this is a canonical book. If you are an organization that really needs to start grokking UX this book is also for you. "  -- Chris Bernard, User Experience Evangelist, Microsoft

User experience design is the discipline of creating a useful and usable Web site or application—one that’s easily navigated and meets the needs of both the site owner and its users. But there’s a lot more to successful UX design than knowing the latest Web technologies or design trends: It takes diplomacy, project management skills, and business savvy. That’s where this book comes in. Authors Russ Unger and Carolyn Chandler show you how to integrate UX principles into your project from start to finish.

• Understand the various roles in UX design, identify stakeholders, and enlist their support
• Obtain consensus from your team on project objectives
• Define the scope of your project and avoid mission creep
• Conduct user research and document your findings
• Understand and communicate user behavior with personas
• Design and prototype your application or site
• Make your product findable with search engine optimization
• Plan for development, product rollout, and ongoing quality assurance
