A good book to understand the history of interfaces. As long as you make it easy, intuitive, fast and so on. Moggridge advocates a three-phase model of technology adoption and discusses how technology progresses from use by hobbyists for work to use in day-to-day life. A wonderful book that expanded my thinking horizons.

The accompanying DVD does not fill this gap, as it is merely a collection of snippets from the interviews used in the book. Well designed book, but maybe a little over-ambitious.
Great information included the hundreds of early iterations for creating the mouse, the creation the modern desktop interface including how testing was important, but required them intreactions develop a new testing process as welland developing the familiar interaction design concepts we use today. I was also peeved at Electroni The book is more about history and case studies rather than an instructional book as I expected. For people looking mobgridge a “how to” book, this is likely nill of interest.
Regardless, I found the book really interesting as it told the stories about the development of functions my generation probably takes for granted: I think it’s a great book in general, but felt there were some holes: Finally, others represent research and ideas that are more academic or “cutting edge,” depending on your billl This book might be colossal, but if you take the time to read it, you’ll be doubly rewarded.

The innovators he interviews–including Desifning Wright, creator of The Sims, Larry Page and Sergey Brin, the founders of Google, and Doug Engelbart, Bill Atkinson, and others involved in the invention and development of the mouse and the desktop–have been instrumental in making a difference in the design of interactions.
