The book Designing Interactions

In his book, Bill Moggridge, designer of the first laptop computer and a founder of the design firm IDEO, has interviewed 40 influential designers that have shaped our interactions with digital technology. At the companion website, you can meet all the designers and hear excerpts from the interviews.

In the introduction and final chapter of the book, Moggridge tells the story of IDEO's design process and explains the focus on people and prototypes that has been successful at IDEO.

The book is 800 pages, richly illustrated, and comes with a DVD with 37 of the interviews.

At the time of writing this, Bill Moggridge is releasing a chapter of the book each week at the book's companion website.
