Book Summary:

Social networks and online communities are reshaping the way people communicate, both in their personal and professional lives. What makes some succeed and others fail? What draws a user in? What makes them join? What keeps them coming back? Entrepreneurs and businesses are turning to user experience practitioners to figure this out. Though they are well-equipped to evaluate and create a variety of interfaces, social networks require a different set of design principles and ways of thinking about the user in order to be successful. Design to Thrive presents tried and tested design methodologies, based on the author’s decades of research, to ensure successful and sustainable online communities -- whether a wiki for employees to share procedures and best practices or for the next Facebook. The book describes four criteria, called "RIBS," which are necessary to the design of a successful and sustainable online community. These concepts provide designers with the tools they need to generate informed creative and productive design ideas, to think proactively about the communities they are building or maintaining, and to design communities that encourage users to actively contribute. Provides essential tools to create thriving social networks, helping designers to avoid common pitfalls, avoid costly mistakes, and to ensure that communities meet client needs Contains real world stories from popular, well known communities to illustrate how the concepts work Features a companion online network that employs the techniques outlined in the book

Book Summary:

John Thackara has spent a lifetime roving the globe in search of design that serves human needs in a sustainable way. He believes that in our eagerness to find technological solutions to the big challenges faced by the human race, we have all too often ignored the astonishing creativity generated when people work together and in harmony with the world around them. Drawing on an inspiring range of examples, from a temple-led water management system in Bali that dates back hundreds of years to an innovative e-bike collective in Vienna, Thackara shows that below the radar of the mainstream media there are global communities creating a replacement economy from the ground up. Through a series of chapters each devoted to essential human concerns, he demonstrates that it is possible to live a rich and fulfilling life based on stewardship rather than exploitation of the natural environment. Ultimately optimistic, Thackara believes that through a huge variety of quiet, piecemeal changes of thought and action, we are coming to a tipping point: the end of one civilization - but the beginning of another.

Book Summary:

‘Life has questions. They have answers’ New York Times We will spend up to 120,000 hours at work in our lifetimes. But how best to use those hours is one of our most challenging questions. We all want to find meaning at work, but our managers can’t get it for us. And as companies work to be more nimble and shift according to changing markets, the workplace is increasingly unpredictable. It’s up to each of us to define and find our own happiness in this ever-moving landscape, which is rich with opportunity and possibility. Designing Your Work Life helps you understand the politics and psychology of work and equips you with the ‘design thinking’ principles – the innovative methodology pioneered at Stanford that has been fuelling the growth of Silicon Valley – to build a working life that works for you. Designers don't analyse, worry, think, complain their way forward; they build their way forward. Perfect for anyone hoping to improve their current job, aiming for a promotion or even switching career paths, as well as recent graduates thinking about their future, Designing Your Work Life is a deeply empowering read. Part business book, part inspirational and innovative self-help, this book will help you answer one of life’s most challenging questions.

Book Summary:

* Our summary is short, simple and pragmatic. It allows you to have the essential ideas of a big book in less than 30 minutes. By reading this summary, you will learn how to adopt the mentality and techniques of designers to improve your life, especially in the professional field. You will also learn : how to effectively find solutions to all your problems; to free yourself from blocking situations; to become very creative; how to search effectively for a job; how to become immune to failure; to make better decisions. Too many people suffer from unsatisfying personal or professional situations. The designer's mentality is an effective solution to find more fulfilling paths because it is totally adapted to problem solving. Using it to "design one's life" in the same way one creates an object, is not as absurd as it seems, because the techniques used to solve difficulties are the same: being curious, experimenting, reformulating, becoming aware of potential, collaborating with others. The aim of design is to respond in the best possible way to a need. Why not use it to make one's life the best it can be? Everybody needs more happiness, everybody needs more design. *Buy now the summary of this book for the modest price of a cup of coffee!
