The User Experience Team of One


"The exigencies of modern product and Web development mean that projects are often understaffed. When the understaffed designer is you, your success depends on knowing where to cut corners and where to apply a full-court press. This clearly written book shows you what works and what wastes time. It will help you become that well-tempered UX team of one who can be great while doing the impossible."
Alan Cooper, founder of design firm Cooper and author of The Inmates are Running the Asylum

"Leah Buley was instrumental in opening my eyes to a more effective approach to UX design. Her lightweight, practical, and collaborative approach not only molds a better user experience but also helps to engage and educate non-UX colleagues."
Paul Boag, host of the Boagworld Web Design Podcast

"This book will be a godsend to the lone UX wolves working in startups everywhere."
Janice Fraser, cofounder of and former CEO of Adaptive Path

"An inspirational and supportive book for those who feel a bit alone and isolated and have to work at a fast pace to take care of everything, especially in big companies."
Silvia Di Gianfrancesco, UX designer at eBay Europe

"I can't think of any other book that talks about these issues. Whereas there are a few covering UX methods—albeit often for bigger teams—this book will be a great guide for lone UXers wandering in the wilderness."
Mary Lojkine, product director, CBS Interactive
