Here at UX Mastery, we love a good book.
Sure, ebooks are great—especially when they incorporate all that whiz-bang interactivity. But there will always be a place in my home for real, paper, pick-me-up-and-flip-through-me physical books. No matter how many blogs, Twitter feeds, discussion forums or online courses come out, nothing beats an old-fashioned bound paper book for structured learning at your own pace on a lazy Sunday afternoon. Or on any day, really.
And so we present for your learning pleasure, the UX Mastery collection of recommended reading:
Note this isn’t every book on the topic out there—just those books that have helped us become better UX Designers. We hope you’ll find them useful too. We plan on posting some summaries and reviews over the coming months, and will be updating this list with more books as we discover new gems or stumble upon old favourites at the back of the shelf.
In the meantime, you should know that every book on the list comes highly recommended. Read something from this collection and you won’t go far wrong in your journey to UX mastery.
