The inmates are running the asylum by Alan Cooper( Book )

47 editions published between 1999 and 2018 in 5 languages and held by 1,277 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Imagine, at a terrifyingly aggressive rate, everything you regularly use is being equipped with computer technology. Think about your telephones, cameras, cars--everything--being automated, programmed, and formatted by people who in their rush to accept the many benefits of the silicon chip, have abdicated their responsibility to make these products easy to use." "It's not a stretch; it's a reality. Our lives are becoming evermore centered around the whims, quips, decisions, and disasters of the high-tech industry. And these software, hardware, and technology developers don't think like us. Despite appearances, business executives are simply not the ones in control of the high-tech world--it is the engineers who are running the show. We have let the inmates run the asylum." "It is abundantly clear to most of us that common folk don't know the difference between a token ring and a mood ring. We need these creators of "faster, stronger, better" innovations to be sure that the creations actually improve our work and lives--not simply drive us crazy. We need the technology to work in the same way average people think. We need a revolution to restore our sanity." "And Alan Cooper is leading the cavalry. Book jacket."--Jacket
About face : the essentials of interaction design by Alan Cooper( )

22 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 738 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

About Face: The Essentials of Interaction Design, Fourth Edition is the latest update to the book that shaped and evolved the landscape of interaction design. This comprehensive guide takes the worldwide shift to smartphones and tablets into account. New information includes discussions on mobile apps, touch interfaces, screen size considerations, and more. The new full-color interior and unique layout better illustrate modern design concepts. The interaction design profession is blooming with the success of design-intensive companies, priming customers to expect "design" as a critical ingredient of marketplace success. Consumers have little tolerance for websites, apps, and devices that don't live up to their expectations, and the responding shift in business philosophy has become widespread. About Face is the book that brought interaction design out of the research labs and into the everyday lexicon, and the updated Fourth Edition continues to lead the way with ideas and methods relevant to today's design practitioners and developers

About face 2.0 : the essentials of interaction design by Alan Cooper( Book )

19 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 383 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We are slowly being suffocated by software that, at best, doesn't meet our needs and that, at worst, presents a danger to our well-being. The authors blame the problem on the technology-driven nature of the software development process. Cooper and Reimann advocate exactly the opposite approach: a people-driven process in which meeting the goals of the user comes first, last, and in between, a process of goal-directed design. The six changes to software development advocated in this book are: 1. Design first, program second; 2. Separate responsibility for design from responsibility for programming; 3. Focus on meeting user goals; 4. Define specific, archetypal users (personas) for your product based on careful observation of actual and potential users; 5. Use personas as the main characters in scenarios, a primary tool in defining the function, behavior, and form of interactive products ; 6. Follow principles of design for behavior
