Interaction design can be defined as designing interactive products to support the way people communicate and interact in their everyday and working lives. To be successful, interaction designers will need a mixed set of skills drawn from psychology, human computer interaction, web design, computer science, information systems, and entertainment as well as an understanding of the desires and needs of people and the kinds of technology available.

Interaction Design: beyond human computer interaction offers a cross–disciplinary, practical and process–oriented introduction to the field, showing not just what principles ought to apply to interaction design, but crucially how they can be applied.

The fourth edition of this best–selling textbook has been substantially updated to reflect this dynamic and fast–moving field and includes:

Wiley e–text featuring videos and Q&A
New chapter Interaction Design in Practice
Coverage of many new and traditional interfaces
25 new talking–head videos with HCI experts answering questions like has HCI gone too far?
New section on emotional tech and automated emotion
Coverage of AgileUX and the maker movement
New sections on social interaction and social media
