A few years ago, we put together a recommended reading list for our readers here at UX Booth. While we’ve added several other recommendations over the years, we thought it was due time to pull together an updated uber-list.
There are a few books everyone reads when starting out with user experience design. These are the books I’ve found to be the most impactful for new UX practitioners.
These books are about all aspects of user experience. They’re useful for any new practitioner, or any veteran UXer looking for insight into aspects of the UX general process.
Whether you’re a beginner content strategist, or a UX practitioner who wants a deeper look at what content strategy is all about, these books are a great place to start.
Information Architecture & Interaction Design
While information architecture and interaction design are clearly connected, it’s not every book that addresses the intersection. Both of these books showcase IA and IxD working together, which makes them extremely valuable reads.
Research & Analytics
No UX project would be complete without research to begin, and analytics to track successes. With that in mind, these books are a must-read for anyone working in user experience.
