Dan Saffer, Senior Interaction Designer, Adaptive Path

“It will be hard for any interaction designer to read Adam Greenfield’s Everyware without feeling like the work we’re doing now is rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic. A combination call-to-arms, overview, and prophecy, Everyware is a frightening, but engaging, read…highly recommended.”

Jeffrey Zeldman, Principal, Happy Cog Studios

“Adam Greenfield has written one of the most provocative books in years. If the right people read it, Everyware may do for the coming, computerless computing interface what Don Norman’s The Design of Everyday Things did for design generally.”

Christopher Fahey, Principal, Behavior Design

“I’ll just say up front that I think Adam Greenfield is a genius…He’s managed to write a technology book woven out of a dozen diverse themes, including futurism, science fiction, culture, art, humanism, and even ethics. The book goes beyond simple technophilia vs. technophobia, and should be a required read for any person interested in even one of the above themes. [W]ill be cited and quoted by future thinkers for many years to come as we continue to deal with the ramifications of ubicomp.”
