You may have already heard of Chris Oliver and his crazy Monster List of UX Books. If not, this article should interest you.
As a UX Designer, Chris Olivier started to create the most exhaustive list of UX books by compiling every list of recommended UX books he could find initially in a Google spreadsheet.
After more than a year worth of work and almost 800 books listed, he decided to move to Airtable, a web app for creating databases.
This 2nd edition of The Monster List of UX Books on Airtable now gives you access to:
– A gallery view with book cover images
– User ratings: sort the list by user ratings and submit your own ratings
– Categorisation: suggest new categories
– A feedback form
You can search by books, by authors, by lists, or by ratings & categories and discover over 180 books, 24 lists, and 13 categories.
