What’s the one book to give to your boss, co-worker or neighbor to explain what design, or user research, is? And why it’s important? There aren’t that many to pick from, which is why I’m writing one.
Meanwhile, what resources, books, articles or videos, are out there that help? I’m surprised that there aren’t more materials out there (web searches for “design evangelism”, “ux evangelism”, “design advocacy”, etc. didn’t return much).
Suggestions? Please Leave a comment.
