“A Project Guide to UX Design: For User Experience Designers in the Field or in the Making” by Russ Unger and Carolyn Chandler

This book has been in my Kindle for months before it was its turn to be read. And boy, was I surprised!

It has been quite a while since I read anything remotely resembling what Russ Unger and Carolyn Chandler wrote. This book is so down to earth and full of external resources that one can dive into and get more knowledge. Truth be told, I had to read it in front of my computer. Why? Cause I was going through those links that were provided.

“A Project Guide to UX Design” walks the reader through all the basic stages of user experience project management and execution. It takes a different point of views a manager and professional should consider. I believe anyone can find something that will be useful in daily business life.

Anyways, I truly recommend this book to anyone that is involved with online business and presence. And then why not the ones that live a perfect offline life, too.

You can get the book as usual at Amazon.com.

The book actually has its own website that lists the links, references and downloads at http://projectuxd.com/. Make sure you do visit!

        Yes actually – Russ is co-authoring a book on guerilla user research methods (with Todd Zaki Warfel), which is due out this year. I have ideas brewing but nothing in the works yet – if there’s anything you’d like to see more of in particular, let us know! (@chanan)

          Good to know! Will keep it in mind.

          Oh, and already started following you on Twitter. 😉 If anything comes up, I’ll be sure to write to you.

          Cheers!

    Great review–so happy that you enjoyed the book!

    As Carolyn mentioned, I’m currently working on a book on Guerrilla Research Methods with Todd Zaki Warfel, and we’re closing in on the halfway mark with completed chapters, and looking to wrap the first round of writing by April!
