    1. This book essentially dissects the process of website creation, clearly defining every element that goes into planning and implementing a website This would have provided an invaluable visual map during our last website redesign Rather than a tangled ball of yarn, I can now see all of the wheels and cogs fit together in a logical manner It seems that, of the five planes of the user experience development process the surface plane, the skeleton plane, the structure plane, the scope plane and the [...]

    2. Somewhere, Nietzsche has a quote probably directed at Kant dissing philosophers who, rather than introduce new ideas or vectors of exploration, simply schematize already existing terms That is, they take a bunch of signifiers and try to ground them in reality or each other.Jesse James Garrett takes schematization to a new level in The Elements of User Experience User Centered Design for the Web, unfortunately See, the problem with user experience is we haven t defined its constituent terms enoug [...]

    3. This is a must read book for anyone involved in web development.It takes a holistic look at the subject of user experience and provides a very useful vocabulary for all the elements involved in user experience design.The author provides a model that consists of 5 planes that cover the abstract as well as the concrete aspects of the user experience.The 5 planes are 1 Strategy why you re building the site for you and your users 2 Scope3 Structure4 Skeleton5 Surface the visual elements of the site [...]

    4. I read this book in preparation for a class at General Assembly on User Experience Design Excellent resource on User Experience for both designers and everyone they meet in a product s life cycle The methodologies herein are invaluable and worth revisiting at the start of each project, and at each phase of a project You won t find specific examples, as the book is about methodology than application This is helpful if you re trying to wrap your mind around what UX is, and how to go about it Find [...]

    5. The diagram that lies at the heart of the book, a layered view of user experience design, is solid The book itself feels kind of padded, though, and I found myself skimming a lot You might be better served by simply meditating on the diagram itself jjg elements pdf elements.pdf , and only referring to the book if you need explication.

    6. A basic of UX it didn t impress me as much as others That websites have layers of meaning, interactivity and can trigger various emotions is something that perhaps than 10 years after the book was written we now take for granted

    7. I just finished Andy Clarke s Transcending CSS and deciding to delve into The Elements of User Experience which I picked up because, skimming, I realized it was giving me names for what most of us are already doing So far, it s concise and Garrett does a nice job of making sure that a web developer doesn t leave a reading of the book with impression that user centered design isn t connected to a much bigger discipline, human factors design Garrett hasn t used that word or Computer Human Interact [...]

    8. Jesse James Garrett exposes in a very clear way the essence of user experience for the web He breaks down the ux for the web into five different planes going deep into the vocabulary and strategy for designing better experiences for our digital world.

    9. Absolutely essential reading if this is an area of professional or personal interest.I try and reread this book once a year as a kind of grounding and to re establish the key processes and steps involved in considered and effective UX design.

    10. This book defines each phrase of user centered designs well Strategy user needs, site objectives , Scope functional spedifications, content requirements , Structure interaction design, information architecture , Skeleton information design , andSurface visual design

    11. In reality, I have probably read this book through at least 3 time using it as a guide and source through my UX practice, and never sitting down and just reading it from cover to cover in one sitting I can imagine that that would be pretty boring These types of books are hard to rate, given that in as little as a few months they could be rendered obsolete, and a new edition will come out within a year with how quickly things change But, pretty sure this s the most up to date one since it s first [...]

    12. What it s about Using design as a way to achieve business goals user goals, including an important framework 5 Planes for thinking about user experience.Why Read It A foundational way to think about design strategy, helpful for approaching new projectsWhen to Read it This is one of those reads that makes you step back and reevaluate your work, and the way you work.Reading this book gives you depth While most people spend time arguing about how UX is not UI which is true , you see deeper than the [...]

    13. I like how the author breaks down the complex field of UX design into a series of individual elements, separated into five different planes The five planes are Strategy, Scope, Structure, Skeleton and Surface, stacked on top of one another to illustrate how a UX project is structured Each plane build upon the decisions made on the underlying plane s , while also informing the options on the plane s above.Especially the first version of the book focuses on UX of websites, but I think most of it c [...]

    14. Recommended to anyone learning about User Experience or has to sell it as part of their job.This book does a good job explaining the fundamental aspects of user experience, defining all the various, seemingly interchangeable terms, and shows how they are all related It is not an actionable book, meaning you can t read it and go redo the UX of a website It doesn t have the principle example format of other books such as Don t Make Me Think I don t see it as a stand alone book but, rather, as a gr [...]

    15. I likely would have rated this book higher had I read it years ago The content is solid but dry It reminded me way too much of sitting in core university classes Garrett s diagram is a great place to start understanding the fundamentals of UX for web I believe that is all this book intended to be, so I won t criticize it for lacking practical and interesting concepts I would certainly recommend it to someone just starting out in UX, but I wouldn t bother with a recommendation to someone with ex [...]

    16. Excellent primer that covers the end to end process of UX design Short enough to be absorbed quickly, this book is packed with great nuggets and sensible terminology Not pretentious Basically it comes down to understanding what the problem is, and the consequences of the solution you are proposing Broken up as elements, this acknowledges overlap between the stages of a project, and doesn t feel prescriptive Deserves its place as a must read Much of this won t be new to you if you work in UX but [...]

    17. Lacks concrete examples for actual interaction design beat practicesI think that the this is a good book, but it kinda falls short ehen it comes to concrete examples of planning interaction As far as I understood, the author suggest using the framework described in the book for managing software solutions as a whole The framework itself is not bad, but the scope, strategy and stru ture planes kinda try to steal away the glory from the good old fashioned software requirement specification documen [...]

    18. For years, this book serves as the foundation for the UX career path Even when you learn all the processes and skills that make up UX Design, this book maintains itself as a worthwhile reference There are many crucial pieces of advice in this book, regardless if you reCrucial foundation for those developing a product Especially if you re in the field of UX Design Great to keep to referencing structure ideas for project planning.

    19. I d like to revisit this book sometime, when I m able to give it some day time level attention and note taking Most of the ideas presented in here were ones I d encountered before, usually divorced from this original context It was published in 2011, after all that said, his five elements framework feels like an excellent foundation to work from, and I ve already tried to apply it to my work.

    20. Enjoyed this than I expected The author includes enough simple examples to make it a great introductory text, as well as plenty of theory to provide reference in the future I used some of his points as starting places for further research, both online and internal to my organization, and I m excited to see where that research will take me For a newbie to UX, this book was well worth reading

    21. Good summary of modern design thinkingShort, quick read Good ideas and structure Nothing dramatically new, but a good distillation and consolidation of modern design think Not a how to guide.

    22. This is a really outdated UX book Some basic concepts are still valid, but most a very basic and others rely too much on ye olde days waterfall system of design I guess there s still some value, if this is a first design book you ll ever read.

    23. Puiki knyga Daugelis ra an i apie UX, IA, UCD ir pan reikalus cituoja arba bent jau mini j ir tikrai verta Tai yra baziniai pagrindai, o toliau jau galima rutulioti visk tuo remiantis.

    24. The world s most powerful functionality will falter and fail if users can t figure out how to make it work It is a common practice that when a product is being developed, people pay a great deal of attention to what it does User experience is the other, often overlooked, side of the equation how it works that can often make the difference between a successful product and a failure.But the fact is despite the vital strategic importance of User eXperience to the success of a web site, the simple m [...]

    25. Perhaps the most pleasantly surprising thing about this book was realizing part way through that it s a theory book For the most part, I can t abide theory I prefer writings that demonstrate their ideas with concrete principles, so I was pleased to realize while reading this book that I hadn t even noticed I was reading theory The prose style is clear and concise enough that the pages fly by despite their abstract content Garrett considers five overlapping planes in website design the surface, s [...]

    26. This is an interesting take on UX The author explains the ux process starting from stating the business objectives to building the user interface I appreciated that the author went for a general process overview rather than techniques and tools of UX, specially for someone like myself who has been checking out these techniques and learning about them but without any proper structure or skeleton that addresses the utility and complementary nature each one provided to the other It also shed some [...]
