I have always been a big fan of good design, but have never really had an opportunity to read much about it from those who make design their living. Recently, thanks to some advanced prototyping and manufacturing tools that have become widely accessible, I’ve been dabbling into design and have made a few of my own gadgets. At the same time I came across this book in the local public library, and thought it would be a good reading material to go with my fledgling design hobby. However, the book turned into a bit of a disappointment.

This book is neither an introduction to the design concepts and techniques, nor a wide-ranging look at the future of design. It comes closer to the latter paradigm, but the narrowness of its subjects and the shallowness of approach don’t lend themselves easily to the deeply thoughtful look at the design of the future things. The book takes a closer look at the issues that pertain to the design of a few interesting “futuristic” technologies (self-driving cars in particular feature prominently), and presents the case to the reader that what we would want out of these technologies may in fact not be either the safest or the best designed solution when it comes to their implementations. The book offers a few insightful observations, and a short checklist of good design principles. Many of these are pretty good overall, but the brunt of their points could have been summarized into an essay that is perhaps a third of the size of this, already very thin, book.

If you are looking for some casual musings by an authority on the subject of design, then this book might be for you. Otherwise you may want to read something that is a bit more technical and systematic. From what I’ve heard about it, The Design of Everyday Things might be a much better read on this subject. I’ll try to check it out at some point in the future.

HASH(0x9ba7d42c) étoiles sur 5 Good but not Great 5 janvier 2008
Par Rob S. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
An interesting read. Ranks in this order:

(1) Design of Everyday Things
(2) Emotional Design
(distant 3rd) Design of Future Things

It wasn't "bad" it simply wasn't as interesting as the others. Whereas at the end of (1) and (2) I felt enlightened - that Norman was breaking new ground. At the end of Future Things I felt he had spent much of the time repeating himself, that the book could have been half the length.

Good book, but I would skip.

HASH(0x9ba7de94) étoiles sur 5 Decent, not essential 21 novembre 2007
Par Andrew Otwell - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Though the title's similar, this is no Design of Everyday Things. This book's very strongly focussed on design ideas for automobile automation, smart cruise control and the like, which gets a little tedious. Surprisingly, Norman also barely explores transportation possibilities beyond the car, and there's no discussion at all of sustainability, how cities and transportation habits are changing, or really any context at all. I guess Norman sees a one-man, one-exhaust pipe future for us.

In other ways, the book feels very much like the product of the last generation of attitudes about technology: there's basically no discussion of the web, or really anything about products that might have both online and physical manifestations. There's certainly some interesting stuff about how people adapt to increasing automation and lack of control in their cars or homes, but no essential insights nor much about the implications of generalized ambient computing and automation, something Adam Greenfield deals with very thoughtfully in Everyware.

HASH(0x9ba7d930) étoiles sur 5 Okay, but no Design of Everyday Things 17 décembre 2007
Par Craig Ogg - Publié sur Amazon.com

Norman's book Design of Everyday Things had a profound effect both on the way I perceive the world and how I design. I have bought every consumer book he has written since then, and have always come away disappointed.

I am giving this book only 3 stars because I felt it became repetitive after a while, having covered the points adequately in the first half of the book. Not up to the quality I expect of Norman.

HASH(0x9ba7df24) étoiles sur 5 Great author, but could have been a better book 26 octobre 2010
Par Rob Wilcox - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
The Design of Future things could have been a much better book, but it has its value.

Norman has a distinguished career as engineer, cognitive scientist and champion for good design before it was fashionable. The book's weakness is its trade book focus on the general reader. It needs to be more engaging and expand beyond a focus on automobile and home automation R&D laboratories.

Its value are proposed principles for human-intelligent machine interaction: provide rich natural and continuous signals; be predictable; provide a good conceptual model; understandable output; and exploit natural mappings. Given the immaturity of the field, these are a very rough starting point. They will be replaced or evolved as broad real experience with intelligent machines evolves.

More important are the recommended readings: suggestions on important technical books and researchers on intelligent machine topics.

Norman's trade book philosophy omits conventional footnotes, though a page linked notes section allows limited references for the reader to go deeper.

A book copyright 2007 would have been written in 2006-6, but missing completely are developments in mobile, gaming, simulation, search, language translation, health care; and the potential of network-backed intelligence in the cloud. Discussion of intelligent social network interaction systems, or social network driven intelligence are absent. Norman also omits the impact of generational adoption and the signaling theory value of technology adoption by individuals.

The book could have omitted science fiction-style dialogs between fictional humans and Norman's fictional future machines. A better approach would have been to critique the interactions in popular film, with online film clip references. A more important focus could have been lessons from the evolution of artificial intelligence research and its disappointments; and ethnographic studies of current early intelligent systems, across cultures. We are sure to see unexpected variety in design theory across developers and academics in diverse world cultures.

Nonetheless, we look forward to the author's next significant book.

HASH(0x9ba80498) étoiles sur 5 disappointing 4 avril 2012
Par mike franzel - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Mixed with some really good ideas is mostly just pontification and droll explanation of things that already are.

Many of the conclusions in this book can be reached much sooner on the reader's own without the lengthy writer's passages that seem to only extend the book's length rather than open the reader's mind. Yes, machines now only signal us, not communicate with us, when the wash's cycle has ended or the microwave's 2 minutes are up, but then, what else do we need? I don't want my vacuum reminding me it's vacuuming or when it's finished. That's why it's automatic.
