Brief and densely packed with information, Lean UX is a practical guidebook for growing and integrating a user experience practice.

Gothelf advocates for building consensus by involving the full team in the design process, including in user research. He describes processes to get a collaborative user-centered design process up and running quickly. For example, he shows how to create proto-personas (which can evolve into full-fledge user personas with time), how to structure a design studio to elicit the input of the full development team, and how to mitigate design bottlenecks through the creation of a style guide.

Gothelf supports validating assumptions through quick and repeated prototyping and research. He gives specific details for how user experience design can be integrated with agile software development, including where ideation and testing fit within a sprint cycle.

In all, the book is solidly grounded in real-world practice, to the point, and highly relevant to current user-centered software creation.
