Ten User Experience Books for Practitioners

February 10, 2013

I recently came across this list of user experience books (http://shaikhjees.com/top-10-best-user-experience-ux-books/16577/). It looks like a pretty good list and definitely focussed on the practical task of building user interfaces. Perhaps the most theoretical of the books is Don Norman’s book on the Design of Everyday Things, but even that one is pretty practical in describing the major principles of user-centred design. There are other lists and other books out there, so I’m not claiming that this is definitive. Originally it was presented as a “top ten” list, but I’d be reluctant to say that these are the top 10 books in the area, but they are certainly interesting ones.
