Brief Book Review: Theories and Practice in Interaction Design

Twenty–two contributions intelligently grouped to cover a variety of areas in HCI, provide an interesting perspective or should I say an Italian perspective on theories and practices of interaction design. Activity, Emotion, Situatedness, Community, Conversation, Memories, Market and In Search of Framework are the 7 parts of this book. Compact chapters help readers to better understand and get familiarized with the topics without getting bored. I found several chapters particularly interesting, including: Participation and Community, Situadedness, Virtual Environments and Haptic Interfaces or Conversations. One might say that some less common terminologies or concepts used in the chapters sometimes make the understanding of the text challenging. However, I think even this complexity along with the philosophical discussions in some sections, generate more thought and make the chapters more interesting. For those who are new to the HCI field the short chapters help readers rapidly learn about a specific topic. The more advanced readers benefit from the variety of the contributions offered. I used several chapters as suggested reading for my HCI courses.

Theories and Practice in Interaction Design, Edited by Sebastiano Bagnara and Gillian Crampton Smith, Lawrence Erlbaum Associates, Inc. Publishers, 2006, 356 pages. ISBN 0–8058–5618–8
