"Overall, Designing Interfaces is an excellent resource for anyone designing interfaces that allow people to interact with machines, and it also works as a good resource for coding or testing interfaces. If you're having an issue with an interface, or a piece of that interface that just doesn't seem quite right, this book might be the tool you're missing."
-- Doug Schaible, Sr., Linux Pro Magazine

"...this is a good book to read if you’re looking into designing an interface. The authors are up-front that this is not the definitive book on designing mobile- being that it is still a fast-evolving medium, that’s a given."
-- Zoltan Romin,

-- Kejun Xu, Technical Communication, Volume 58, Number 4, November 2011

"No one would consider going on a lengthy journey without a map or guide. Likewise no IT professional should attempt to design interfaces without reading this book. It has many insights, tips, tricks, and advice that even some of the most experienced designers will be unaware of. "
