Comments about oreilly Agile User Experience Design:
This is a worthwhile read. Ms. Brown will establish trust with many readers immediately through her summary of the common problems of integrating a visual design/UI-focused resource into a software engineering team practicing agile. She shares, though sometimes in a subtle way, the forcing functions (or inevitable impacts) of the various tactical trade-offs. In an an empathetic manner consistent with someone responsible for solving end users' real problems, Ms. Brown has written a book for solving our own. The only reason this isn't a max-star book is that it hasn't been edited quite as well as the next few iterations should be. Ms. Brown is an expressive (sometimes verbose) writer. A few noticeable spelling mistakes, some extraneous words, and a poor phrase or two could be corrected. Otherwise, this is a fine work from an obviously keen observer.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
