3 UX books for non-UX people

From our special collections. Have you ever wanted to present or give a UX book to someone – like your boss, a designer, or that developer that just won’t listen? Do not despair. There are great books out there that will help you do just that. These are books about the core of user experience design, but they can easily be read by non-UX people, and they will probably love them.

#1: DON’T MAKE ME THINK

Don’t Make Me Think, Revisited: A Common Sense Approach to Web Usability (3rd Edition) by Steve Krug style=

The succes of “Don’t Make Me Think”, a great classic, comes from the fact that the book takes away lofty design principles and presents a great, simple, common-sense design principle: Don’t make the user think. Make thinks simple, easily accessible. The book makes it point by asking poignant questions, that will make even non-UX people go A-ha!

#2: THE DESIGN OF EVERYDAY THINGS

The Design of Everyday Things: Revised and Expanded Edition by Don Norman style=

For non-UX people, I would probably include thos one too. It’s a bit nerdy for someone not in interaction design, but if that person likes to read, it will present the core of the User Experience profession in a timeless, interesting way – they will probably want to become just like you, and start in this great and interesting profession. It’s also a very unpretentious book – thumbs up for that.
