Coming in 2016, a new book about War Stories


I’m working on another book! It’s Epic Fail: Design Research War Stories, and is based on the War Stories that I’ve been gathering since 2012.

As design researchers, we love stories. At its simplest, our job is to gather stories and to retell them. War stories are accounts of contextual user research (research out in the field) and the inevitable mishaps that ensue. These stories are in turn bizarre, comic, tragic, and generally astonishing. This book will share some of the best stories, examine the patterns revealed by the stories, and articulate the valuable lessons they reveal.
