People are clamoring for more copies of Thoughts on Interaction Design. It is one of two key books on interaction design practice that are of relevance to students and practicing interaction designers alike." Jodi Forlizzi, Associate Professor of HCII and Design, Carnegie Mellon University "This book occupies alone a special place on the designer's bookshelf; it is truly a unique and lusciously written book that also benefits from being well-designed in its own right." -- Will Evans, Principal, Experience Design, Twin Technologies "The major strength of the book is its success in rendering theoretical content in an accessible way. The book delivers a healthy measure of critical thinking about the field of Interaction Design in a readable, conversational style." -- Bill Lucas, MAYA Design "Thoughts on Interaction Design became an instant classic. The 1,000 original bound copies of the book are treasured possessions of everyone lucky enough to have been able to purchase one." -- Steve Baty, editor for Johnny Holland magazine, a contributor to UX Matters "This book has an eloquent and clear way of communicating the context for interaction design both in theory and in application, outlining its relative place in business, academia, and in practice. - Liz Danzico, Chair of the MFA in Interaction Design program at the School of Visual Arts "MK author Jon Kolko talks with Jeff Parks of Radio Johnny about his recently re-released book Thoughts on Interaction Design!"

heavy at the start, but better after chapter 3 27. April 2008
Von Q. G. H. Berk - Veröffentlicht auf
Verifizierter Kauf
For someone writing about usability the style of writing is all but that. Sometimes I think he writes this complicated so that other people might think how many difficult words he knows. If you compare his writing style and design (really small font and green on white) to Steve Krug's "don't make me think" you wonder why Mr. Kolko chose tho do it this way. Shouldn't books be usable too?
Beyond chapter 3 however it starts to get really interesting. And the writing gets more understandable.

Good book, but the design and style of writing really makes you plough through it more often than not.

Chicken Soup for the Designer's Soul 5. August 2007
Von Chapman E. Ambrose - Veröffentlicht auf
As an interaction designer trying to find my place in the world, I typically am the sole designer on a team or the single designer in an organization. I enjoy evangelizing the power of design, however, feeling like you have to constantly explain and justify your existence can become tiresome.

Whenever I forget that other designers exist or feel like the ugly duckling among swans, I pick up this book and am reenergized knowing other people like me are out there. I'm a part of a larger community of passionate people who care about this stuff.

Jon's book is good at making me feel normal again and giving me the language to explain this fire I have to make the world better and help people in need.
Sometimes daunting, but clearly an important read 14. Mai 2014
Von Rachel Weeks - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
To be honest, the first few chapters of the book were tricky for me. I felt like I was often slogging through a rhetoric book, Kolko defining and clarifying and qualifying his way through the first few chapters. I had to look up a number of the things he wrote about in outside sources.
But the book is a second edition, an expansion of the first, which I haven’t read (It came recommended to me). While I had hoped that the book would be an appropriate introduction to get myself into interaction design, it seemed to be more for experienced interaction designers. Perhaps, if I read the first, this book will become clear.
That being said, not everything Kolko said was lost on me. He’s clearly an expert with a lot to say about teaching businesses about changing their interactive experience and how to explain that as a designer. He argues for design’s role in the world, as a deep, much-considered structure, not just a surface-level structure.
And while the rhetoric can be daunting, Kolko defines the language of the interaction design field. This book was a valuable read for somebody like me who is looking to learn more about UI/UX and technology design. I just might have to go back to it after I lay down some more ground work.

Proud student. 16. Mai 2007
Von A. Kim - Veröffentlicht auf
I think this book does a beautiful job of explaining the intricacies and broad ideas of the field of Interaction Design (which is ironically appropriate for the subject matter). It often seems that the current identity of Interaction Design has gained ambiguity, however the representation given in these essays is a very up to date and accurate description.

I feel this book would be greatly appreciated by anyone who is interested in or is currently involved with Interaction Design or Industrial Design. A definite must read for any students involved with these fields (as I am one myself).

The collaboration of writing from other designers provides a great perspective on the current industry. Honest and straight-forward, this puts a refreshing emphasis on the humanistic values of design. Great job Jon, I look forward to what you do with the next project ;).

Compelling & Empowering 14. Juni 2007
Von Peter J. Warren - Veröffentlicht auf
"Thoughts on Interaction Design" is much more than a book that explains what interaction design is; it documents a new way of thinking about the role of Design in modern society. In this book you will find an exploration of why the designer's role has become increasingly hazy and why the process of design is such a powerful tool for shaping behavior.
This is an indispensable tool for any designer that has a need to justify and articulate their true potential to employers and clients. It addresses the big-picture behind interaction design and helps to establish a greater understanding regarding the potential of interaction designers to shape the future.
