        This is an interesting time to be a software innovator. It seems like just yesterday that we were talking about how to port our web experiences to mobile, and now we're watching keynotes announcing amazing new smart watches, glasses, and other hardware devices.

        It's time to start thinking differently about content and relevancy of information in the context of our users' lives, and this book hits the topic squarely on the head. I'd recommend this book to anyone developing consumer software or hardware.

          great book!

          This book is really important to read. It is is really easy to read with tone of examples and allot of interesting facts.
          I think it is a "must read" for all entrepreneurs. As an entrepreneur you have to know that your UX is one of the most important aspects of your product.
          This book gave me a whole new perspective on my startup's UX design. and according to the author tips we are now making a few significant changes to our design.
          I learned allot from reading it and find my self more then once going back to read a specific section again to refresh my memory.
          I would really recommend this book for everyone in the design / UX / product / entrepreneurship fields. I know we did - all of our designer and product guys have read it.

              Excellent book, easy to read and understand, organized in simple sections and makes for a very simple and logical mythology for developing the next generation of web applications. I highly recommend it for anyone that thinks they plan to be in this industry.
