Interviewing Users: How To Uncover Compelling Insights by Steve Portigal

Interviewing is a foundational user research tool that people assume they already possess. Everyone can ask questions, right? Unfortunately, that's not the case. Interviewing Users provides invaluable interviewing techniques and tools that enable you to conduct informative interviews with anyone. You'll move from simply gathering data to uncovering powerful insights about people.

Interviewing Users will explain how to succeed with interviewing, including:

  • Embracing how other people see the world
  • Building rapport to create engaging and exciting interactions
  • Listening in order to build rapport.

With this book, Steve Portigal uses stories and examples from his 15 years of experience to show how interviewing can be incorporated into the design process, helping you learn the best and right information to inform and inspire your design.

    Had a great time attending last night's meetup. The conversations were fascinating, and everyone was so passionate about users and design. It was fun to skype with Steve Portigal. Thanks to the organizers.

    Has anyone had trouble with the discount code? It didn't seem to want to work for me.

      Looks like the coupon expired on the 18th. The publisher has extended it for us. Sorry for the inconvenience, folks.

      The book is also available on Amazon and appears to be cheaper (if you have a Kindle) -- you can get it for $12.10.

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
