 "Don’t waste your life doing meaningless research"

In Remote Research Nate Bolt, and Tony Tulathimute use their knowledge and experience in user testing and experience design to share about the benefits of using remote research when conducting user testing. The book is written from the assumption that the reader has some knowledge of user testing, but is still very palatable for some who have not conducted any lab or remote testing.

The book also provides a comprehensive list of different tools that can be used during remote testing and shares the pro’s and con’s of them so that you can make a decision as to what tools will work best for your situation. There is a wide array of tools that can be used online or from your desktop and really shows that with a few resources you can do all the testing you need and stay within’ or below budget without sacrificing the quality of test results.

This book is a must for anyone who is involved in or is planning user testing in anyway. There is valuable insight and great resources throughout the book, Nate and Tony bring a fun, practical approach to sharing their knowledge and experience in remote  user testing.

If your interest has been peaked… or you have been looking for good user testing, design, and UX books/resources make sure check out Remote Research and other Rosenfeld Media titles.
