Unless you are in an environment where UX is understood, desired, held in respect, this is one book you must read"

She has worked a lot with Josh Clark and together have been focusing on mobile. Plus, this is one of the very few books on Content Strategy and the first one to be focused on mobile"

Living with Complexity

"I still remember an auditorium full of people, Don Norman on stage, and on screen a ppt with the picture of the salt and pepper shakers. Half the audience thought the salt shaker had one hole, half the audience though it obvious it was the many-holed one. We live in a complex world, and simple solutions are not always the answers - try "uncomplicated" better. Read the book."
