I'll read just about anything from Smashing Magazine, so I was especially happy to see a new book from them on UX. High marks first off for the quality of the book's binding and physical design, including having a bookmark built in - great UX considerations from a UX book. This is not a book about UX principles, it's about how to instill user-centric design practices into your organization. It's a topic that deserves a lot more attention, because the greatest UX designer working for a company th ...more

I am not sure whether non UX designer population will have too much use for this book (maybe PMs, and developers as well) but for me as one it was a complete gem. Going through it the second time now just because it has a lot of concrete information and examples I want to check out. The techniques mentioned will let you dive deeper into best practices but also explain some things if you are not too familiar with the topic at hand. Expect a lot of interesting examples touching on a wide variety o ...more

Boag admits that this book is not about how to create a great user experience, but about how you can build an office culture that will allow you to create a great user experience. He describes tools that can be used toward this end: maps that can help your colleagues understand the tasks a user may face and emotions a user may feel as she interacts with your product; policies that can help you place user experience above the off-track requests you may receive from management; and a “user attenti ...more

I enjoyed the aesthetic design of this book. It really had some unique characteristics that made the UX of the physical book itself, better.

I think as someone with a design background in a design oriented organization, the book’s content was not what I was expecting. The books subtitle is “a tactical battle plan for putting the user at the heart of your business.”

I was hoping to take a company which is already user centric, and really take it up a notch.
However, this book is really about takin
