Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
But Whitney and Dan are right to focus on wider themes. I enjoyed the book because it felt like I was reading myself into a community. International and cross-cultural research and design is important not just for business, but also for our emerging global society. And this means that people undertaking this work have to prepare themselves to watch, listen and think in new ways, and to take real care in analysing what they've found in order to make good design decisions. If that challenge is part of your work then this book will draw you right into the skills, outlook and attitudes you'll need to develop to be successful in this field.
In a time of short attention and result-oriented solutions, it might take another few years for people to experience the true taste of this book. So, keep it in a nice and cool condition!
This book is essential reading for the UX professional and I gladly recommend it.
