Reviews

All in all, I cannot recommend this book too highly: it is fascinating, stimulating and illuminating.

-Professor Tom Wilson, Information Research

During the past forty years, interaction designers have powerfully transformed the daily lives of billions. Designing Interactions is a deeply knowing, intimate portrayal of these people: who they are, how they think, and precisely what they do. If you live or work with computers or cell phones-and who among us has any choice about that?-then you owe it to yourself to read this. A labor of love that was years in the making, this classic has no rival in its field.

-Bruce Sterling, author of Shaping Things
Designing Interactions offers multiple interfaces in its own right. It's not just a well-designed, nicely indexed book, with a heft that strains the tendons (the back of my review copy cracked after only a few hours of gentle use), but also an enclosed DVD with interviews, and a website (designinginteractions.com) that includes a weekly downloadable chapter. There's an inherent lesson in this arrangement, which is the value of choice. The very randomness of Moggridge's archive shows the truest quality of good interaction design: personality.-I.D. Magazine

This is one hell of a book...Part history lesson, part computer science thesis, part design education, part personal design philosophy, it is fascinating, inspirational, occasionally baffling, and often hilarious.
