Review quote

Chauncey is extremely well qualified to write this book. Many readers will already be aware of the various bibliographies he has put together over the years, the references he posts to online discussion lists, and his other contributions to the professional community. In short, Chauncey is highly regarded in the HCI field, and I think that many people would buy this book simply because he wrote it. --Carolyn Snyder, Snyder Consulting
