Product Description:

Human-Computer Interaction

Review:

"One could easily imagine it being titled An introduction to empirical research in HCI. That is its strength, and there it shines. The book is relatively short but packed with information; features tight but lively writing; and is thoughtfully illustrated and amply sourced...For those wishing to learn more about HCI through (publishable) experiments, this is a fantastic introduction." --ComputingReviews.com, December 2013

"Human-computer interactions (HCI) is an ever more important subject for study as computers become ever faster, smaller, and more integrated into daily life. MacKenzie ...emphasizes the performance of research into HCI in this work intended for the working scientist...Each chapter concludes with student exercises and there is a supplementary website that contains software source code, several statistical applications, and packages for experiments in HCI." --Reference & Research Book News, December 2013

"This is intended to be a textbook specifically for use in teaching the topic at a degree level, and it achieves that aim in no small measure...The text is clear, slightly conversational and offers a refreshing look at the field of study...The book contains a number of interesting case studies designed to illustrate the various issues, and it also contains some questionnaires and other example material, all designed to make the reader query how and why they do things." --BCS.org, November 2013

"Scott McKenzie is one of the most thoughtful, thorough, authoritative, and careful HCI researchers I know.  This book puts his experience, insights, and wisdom into a highly accessible, practical, and user-friendly form.  It ties general notions in user interface design to solid scientific concepts and experimental procedures, and it teaches readers how to perform them for themselves.  And it even concludes with a chapter on how to write a research paper -- useful advice, but rarely found in such a book." --Robert J.K. Jacob, Department of Computer Science, Tufts University
