UX Dallas Book Club: Brilliance by J. Schuh

Join the UX Dallas Book Club in June, when they will be breaking bread and talking about "Brillance: Understanding the Creative Mind" by J. Schuh and Bennett Litwin. We will be in the community room. Feel free to grab a snack or a drink and come upstairs.

NOTE: J. Schuh will be at this book club, so you can expect a fun-filled and lively conversation with the co-author of the book!

In this book, you will learn about creative problem solving, innovation, and design thinking through the eyes of a female student taking a class called Brilliance at a local university.  Our protagonist must write a series of blog posts for her teachers.  She explores logic/emotion, design/usability, art/technology, work/family, and more.

J. Schuh and Bennett Litwin were creative in their writing.  The book design has these elements to give you a user experience as you read:

• Read interesting blog posts written by a young student

• View illustrations drawn by J. Schuh

• Take self-assessment exercises to improve your....self

• Review Lecture Notes by J. Schuh on various topics

• Read quotes from famous people

    J Schuh is that fun teacher we all loved in school. He makes us think and challenge convention. And, to hear him speak is a treat, no hearing aid required.

      You may need a hearing aid, if you sit too close.
