I read a lot, and not just articles or research or UX. I like to share stuff I read and like.
Just started reading the Black Swan: the Impact Of the Highly Improbable. It’s worthy so far.
The Black Swan: Second Edition: The Impact of the Highly Improbable (Incerto) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00139XTG4/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_L9kHBbCPXKA4E
I haven’t read that one yet, but Antifragile from the same author was world-shaking for me. I didn’t like the style of writing or the author’s bombast and self-adoration, but I couldn’t put it down.
I still highly recommend Good Strategy Bad Strategy by Richard Rumelt to anyone who likes these kinds of texts.
From a more hands-on Researching UX User Research by James Lang and Emma Howell is a light read published by Site-point that has a lot of instruction.
Yeah, agreeed about the tone of voice and style but good content. I read Antifragile too and got that same Richard Dawkins-type feel. Good thoughts and ideas, self important blowhard author.
This is more philosophical reading for me @avangelist less heavy than say Anthropic Bias but less business-focused than Team of Teams
Don’t even get me started on the sci-fi series du jour.
I have created a list of UX related books some time ago: http://www.amazon.de/registry/wishlist/3ITKB4UG7NABH
There’s also this out in the wild: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1337MCXsUaJCfXj29r8cb_uxwTJEvEm-bvSXvEp-k55M
I just read a wide range of stuff (HMU if anyone wants to talk dystopian futures or Dune).
This Airtable from Chris Oliver;
is a really useful collection of UX & Design related books, made even more useful by the inclusion of the ‘user rating’ feature ツ
Hah! That’s my Google sheet, they apparently moved it to airtable
Obviously haven’t looked at it in a while. I’m reading Black Swan by the guy who wrote Anti-Fragile, the most recent Expanse book(#7), and Reader Come Home about how digital reading is changing our brains.
