Leo Frishberg from UXmatters has written a lengthy review of Dan Saffer's book Designing for Interaction.
"In fewer than 300 pages, he has attempted to cover the history, current practice, and notions about the future of the rapidly evolving discipline of interaction design (IxD)."
"Designing for Interaction succeeds as a quick survey of the landscape of IxD, suitable for familiarizing a project manager or an individual considering it as a career with the breadth of the practice. However, its broader discussions about design theory, product-development practices, and the like are less successful, because of their lack of attention to detail."
"All in all, the book is a substantial piece of work with an ambitious intent that Saffer delivers on well. I recommend it to those curious to learn more about the evolving discipline of interaction design."
