This book goes deep on HCI while remaining reader friendly. I especially appreciate the "challenges" found throughout the book as a guided way to get hands on with the material.

Lead Curriculum Architect, Sr. UX Designer, Educator, Author.

Human Computer-Interaction is a growing field.

A designer who uses creative thinking to understand existing problems in order to forge innovative and unique solutions. When designing, teaching, and writing, I take a human-centered approach to my students who do not know exactly know how they want to pursue the design process. If a skill is too narrow-focused or too conceptual, students are not likely to explore how design can be applied further. On the other hand, well-designed content has the potential to spark students to pursue a deeper interest in solving problems through design. I am very conscious of the long-term effects of design thinking. The foundation of design principles and human-centered research practices have far-reaching implications when it has come to my career. Design has a long tail. Like other crafts practice and repetition makes for high-quality output
