Thank you to Darren Hood for a highlight on his list of recommended user research books. Darren proclaims, "UX research (UXR) is extremely popular today. Most of the new and aspiring UXers I speak with express a desire to specialize in this arena." He then continues about the book Make Your Customers Dance, "Research is about obtaining trustworthy, actionable data. And there’s no greater data than the data that informs us about our users, their needs, their goals, and their challenges. In this book, Majers and Turner parallel the design of optimal experiences with the world of DJing." If you are looking for a strong reading list on UXR, then check out Darren's list.
