New RM book: Remote Research


We’re absolutely thrilled to announce the publication of our sixth book, Remote Research: Real Users, Real Time, Real Research by Nate Bolt and Tony Tulathimutte.

When it comes to remote research, there are many skeptics, and their criticisms are fair. In their book, Nate and Tony more than answer these criticisms, and make a strong case for something that is beginning to seem inevitable. After all, the tools for performing remote research—to which the authors devote an entire chapter—are becoming more powerful and more specialized. And the increasingly global and distributed nature of our users is perhaps the strongest case for becoming literate with remote research.

Here’s the book that will help you do so—in 266 beautifully illustrated pages, as well as two DRM-free PDF versions (one screen-optimized, and one for you to print yourself). The illustrations are all available under a Creative Commons license via Flickr. And you’ll find lots of other useful material on the book’s site, including wonderful testimonials from such folks as Jared Spool, Mike Kuniavsky, and Chauncey Wilson.

Finally, you can take 15% off your purchase. How? Follow @rosenfeldmedia on Twitter, and we’ll instantly DM you the discount code.

Enjoy! And please pass along the news to anyone who might be interested in learning more about remote research.
