I had the pleasure of giving a presentation last week for the NovaUX meetup on transitioning into UX. It went pretty well. The presentation was not recorded, but there is some information and reaction captured here, and I posted my slides here.

I promised the group that I wold post a UX reading list. So, here’s a set of books that should keep any budding UXer busy. This is, by no means, and ehaustive list, but I think it covers some key areas for an upcoming UX designer, or anyone looking to take on a greater understanding of user-centered product design and management. I have read almost all of these, but even those I haven’t read come with a high recommendation from colleagues. There are many, many more… so have at it!

Feel free to post any additions in the comments. I’d love to hear about any books that have played a role in your professional development as a designer.
