Foundational knowledge and emerging topics are presented with virtuoso flair.  It charms from the start: page after page you'll encounter stimulating, thoughtful wisdom written in a friendly, encouraging and empowering way. If you only ever buy one interaction design book in your life, this is the one: buy it and join the vital movement of person, community and society centred design that is building a bright future for billions of users worldwide.”—Professor Matt Jones, Future Interaction Technology Lab, co-author of There's Not an App for That – Mobile User Experience for Life (www.changetheworldUX.org)

 “The 4th edition of Interaction Design, with its comprehensive and refreshing take on fundamentals of Human–Computer Interaction and integration in practice and recent research, sustains its status of first choice HCI course book in Namibia. The book is well-structured and content blended with plentiful case studies, activities and relevant and entertaining links which promote students’ appreciation beyond their course work.”—Dr Heike Winschiers-Theophilus, School of Computing and Informatics, Polytechnic of Namibia

“Interaction Design has always been my favorite textbook for all levels of education in HCI – so much so it inspired the development of our new undergraduate and postgraduate programmes named after it. With this new edition it continues to be the most updated and accessible work available. As always, it captures state of the art in the field’s cumulative body of knowledge, and is a timely pointer toward new and emerging trends in interactive technology design and use.”—Dr Jesper Kjeldskov, Professor of Computer Science, Aalborg University

Professor Reviews

From the Reviews of Previous Editions …

“Interaction Design presents a highly needed comprehensive and contemporary perspective on the field of interaction design. The third edition once again establishes the book as the fundamental textbook in the field.”
Bob Fields, Interaction Design Centre, Middlesex University 

“In many years of using this text for my courses at both the graduate and undergraduate levels, I have continually been impressed at the clarity and accessibility to students at all levels. As the book has evolved through ever-better editions,it has kept up with the changes in the field and has become THE text in human computer interaction.”
Terry Winograd, Professor of Computer Science, Stanford University

 “The book is an excellent textbook for engineering students, and a practical and up-to-date handbook for user experience researchers.  I am especially delighted that the language is consistently easy, and pleasurable to read especially by the non-native English speakers.”
Kaisa Väänänen-Vinio-Mattila, Professor of Usability and User Experience, Tampere University of Technology, Finland
