Think First: My No-Nonsense Approach to Creating Successful Products, Memorable User Experiecnes and Very Happy Customers by Joe Natoli
I first came across Joe Natoli some time ago when I first became interested in UX and wanted to find an online course to explore UX. His relaxed style of delivery coupled with a no-nonsense approach to user experience make this book one of my favourites.
If you’re one of those pen and paper type of people then this is for you! It’s a workbook rather than a theory publication which tells you from the outset that it’s offering the reader a more practical approach to UX. It’s interactive, practical and is suitable for professionals or beginners wanting to extend their sketching skills and explore sketching techniques and thought processes.
One of the best-selling books on UX and for good reason. Since its first publication sixteen years ago, ‘Don’t Make Me Think’ has been used by website developers and designers to help them understand the principles of intuitive navigation and information architecture. If your budget only allows for one book on the subject then invest in this!
