Inspirational Books

I will be the first to admit that I don’t read nearly enough. I read websites, sure, and periodicals too. But books are something I just don’t read much.

However, there is one book I consistently come back to for inspiration and insight: experience design 1 by Nathan Shedroff.

I like it because it, in the very least, gets me thinking about design ideas for websites and things. But I also like it because the examples are definitely not all websites. He draws on inspiration from everyday objects, and presents them in an interesting new light. The entire idea is that there is a real design to the experience of things… including websites… and that has intrigued me to no end.

As a bonus, the book is a stunner. It’s gorgeous to look at, even better to read, and does its job well. I’ve been waiting an eternity for a second book in the series, as this one is about two years old.

It’s nice to see a book serve not only as inspiration, but as reference and guidance too.

I hate people who TYPE IN ALL CAPS and don't know what the hell they're talking about. For instance, this is a Ping about Inspirational Books - not about your perverted fantasies about Raven-Symone. Learn to use AOL, will ya? Oh, and by the way, YOUR CAPS LOCK KEY IS BROKEN.
