Some books about HCI or UX design focus on a web sites or a specific similar products. Some texts explore the aesthetic and emotional value provided by various elements of design. However, there are few texts that explore the semantic connections that live between technology, and form and people-or "interactions."
Thoughts on Interaction Design offers readers new insights into Interaction Design and the connections between technology and formpeople and technology. Now in its second edition, Jon Kolko's best-selling title builds upon its engaging material aimed to educate Designers, help Designers educate business owners, and legitimize Interaction Design for businesses. This edition explores (among many other aspects) how, for example, changes in the economic climate, an increased connectivity, and an international adoption of technology, affects designing for behavior and the nature of design itself. Ultimately, the text exists to provide a definition that encompasses the intellectual facets of the field, the conceptual underpinnings of interaction design as a legitimate human-centered field, and the particular methods used by practitioners in their day-to-day experiences.

Summary: "This book is a thoughtful discussion of design as a socially interactive medium rather than a book that presents the reader with a prescriptive set of rules and methods to provide ''usability and ease of use.'' Its language is often academic. But for any designer who wishes to learn more about design and its philosophical implications, this book will provide food for thought." -- ACM Computing Reviews "In writing Thoughts on Interaction Design, the author ''s reflective, learned, and articulate exploration has simultaneously provided an entire profession with a rallying point, a claim to credibility, and a vision. When we look back on the formative years of Interaction Design as a distinct endeavor, this book will surely be recognized as the seminal work."- Steve Baty, Principal, Meld Studios "Jon is an important voice in the evolution of interaction design. In Thoughts on Interaction Design, he carefully explains the essential qualities of the discipline and its potential role in world, well beyond the design of user interfaces. If you are concerned with shaping the future, solving big problems and creating things and systems that bring out the best in people, then this book will help you understand and explain how practice of interaction design can help.-- David Cronin, Managing Director, Interaction Design at Cooper, co-author of About Face 3rd Edition "Jon Kolko moves Interaction Design to a new level of analysis with this powerful, thoughtful book. Kolko demonstrates that interaction design impacts all aspects of our lives. That the tools and methods can be used for the solution of social and political issues and not simply for the development of products. This book is essential reading for all who wish to move beyond style to deep, impactful substance."-- Don Norman, Nielsen Norman group, author of Living with Complexity "This is a necessary updating of Jon Kolko''s original work; retaining the clarity and accessibility of the first edition but pushing into more areas, as the practices (and the concerns) of interaction design/designers have expanded broadly in the past few years. Jon has the heart of a thought leader and the soul of a teacher, and he offers up a healthy amount of both in this book."-- Steve Portigal, Principal, Portigal Consulting The second edition of Kolko''s Thoughts on Interaction Design is an important book for the discipline of interaction design. It artfully weaves together the practice of interaction design with contemporary design theory and research in a thoughtful and reflective manner. The result is a text that is immensely valuable for both senior and novice interaction designers. -- Carl DiSalvo, PhD. Georgia Institute of Technology. This book is a tightly packed bundle of valuable ideas. Kolko distilled his years as an interaction design practitioner and educator into a thoughtful, entertaining and useful collection of essays that are as insightful as they are quick to read. This book is like having an amazing dinner with a colleague who gives you the wisdom of decades of experience in a few short hours.-- Mike Kuniavsky, author of Smart Things "Kolko, Executive Director of Design Strategy for Thinktiv, presents this text which covers interaction design from an academic approach. Intended as an educational tool for designers, this text focuses primarily on defining interaction design, developing ways to intellectualize and communicate design concepts, and exploring artistic and cultural relevance of interaction design. This edition also includes up-to-date information on technological, cultural, and market shifts which always influence the manner in which humans interact with technology and ultimately influence the approaches that are viable for designers."-- Book News, Reference & Research "What exactly is interaction design, and what is it for? That is the elusive question which this book addresses. It does so wi. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_new_0123809304

Book Description Elsevier Science & Technology. Paperback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, Thoughts on Interaction Design (2nd Revised edition), Jon Kolko, Thoughts on Interaction Design, Second Edition, contemplates and contributes to the theory of Interaction Design by exploring the semantic connections that live between technology and form that are brought to life when someone uses a product. These connections may be thought of as interactions that, in aggregate, make up behavior, and are beginning to hint that a field known as design is a legitimately separate area of study alongside science or art. This text defines Interaction Design in a way that emphasizes the intellectual and cultural facets of the discipline. It discusses the role of language, argument, and rhetoric in the design of products, services, and systems. This idea of language is extended to poetry, and the idea of a poetic interaction that affects not only the mind and body but also the soul is introduced. The text examines the process Interaction Designers in approaching complicated problems related to behavior and time. This process includes structuring large quantities of data, thinking about users, and attempting to support human behavior as it unfolds over time. Finally, the text prescribes a purposeful extraction of Interaction Design from the confines of business to leverage the design process for social, political, and economic problem solving. *Provides new and fresh insights on designing for behavior in a world of increased connectivity and mobility and how design education has evolved over the decades *Maintains the informal-yet-informative voice that made the first edition so popular.
