We have a few new Experience Consultants starting this month, so I asked the team which books had helped them most in their UX careers. Here are five of my favourites:
Don’t Make Me Think — Steve Krug
This is one of the classic introductions to UX and is worth reading in its entirety (it’s an easy read).
Design Is A Job — Mike Monteiro
Mike Monteiro explains that doing design isn’t some mystical art, it’s helping a client solve a problem (and getting paid to do it).
Researching UX — Emma Howell & James Lang
A really simple step-by-step guide to planning, running and analysing a research project. I think this might be one of the most useful UX guides out there.
The seminal book about IA.
We’ve done many variations on the 5 day ‘Google Sprint’ over the years. This book gives you the how and the why of the ‘official’ approach.
