by Jenny Preece (University of Maryland), Helen Sharp (Open University), Yvonne Rogers (UCLIC)

The field of interaction design is about designing interactive products and services to support the way people communicate and interact in their everyday and working lives. In particular, it involves applying knowledge and skills from many areas, including Human-Computer Interaction, psychology, computer science, information systems and design to create transformative and immersive experiences. In the newly revised sixth edition, a team of distinguished UX and tech professionals delivers the latest, most up-to-date version of the gold standard in human-computer interaction references. The book offers a cross-disciplinary, practical, and process-oriented intro to the field, showing readers the principles they should apply to interaction design as well as how to apply them. The authors demonstrate the interdisciplinary skills necessary for interaction design, human-computer interaction, information design, web design, and ubiquitous computing. An essential guide for interaction design professionals, the sixth edition will also earn a place in the libraries of senior undergraduate and master's-level students of human-computer interaction, interaction design, web design, software engineering and information studies. Accompanying the text is an extensive website at which contains additional teaching and learning material.
