Book review – Designing for Emotion

Designing for Emotion, by Aaron Walter, is one of those small books that are great to read while traveling by plane. Despite being short and directed for designers, it will prove valuable to any web developer. Basically, the author explains how to build products that are more human and how you can benefit of them. He doesn’t delve deep on the topics, but he gives an overview on how to do stuff and where to begin. It’s a nice introduction to Interaction Design, and it’s really worth reading.
