"Designing Interactive Systems: People, Activities, Contexts, Technologies" is an exciting, new, forward-looking textbook in Human Computer Interaction (HCI).

Authoritative in its coverage, this innovative book takes a top-down approach, starting with what is familiar to students and working down to theory/abstract underpinnings. This makes it suitable for beginners with a less technical background as well as advanced students of HCI and can be used at all stages of the curriculum for courses in this dynamic field.""

" "The book focuses on and explores this emerging discipline by bringing together the best practice and experience from HCI and interaction design (ID). The approach takes traditional human-centred concepts from HCI, but recognizes that we have gone beyond computers and are concerned with designing engaging interactions between people and a wide range of devices, products and systems. New areas explored include information appliances, supported cooperation and ubiquitous computing and systems.
