The appendix with illustrated gestures seemed like a bit much, but it does provide a good example of gesture documentation and the richness of gestures and innate meanings available to us naturally did surprise me at some points.
Anyway a good starting point and shows once more how very much at the beginning of this development we are. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. Want to Read saving….

It is a-must for anyone dealing with the design of either UI, gestures or both. What I lacked while reading were deep and thorough examples. The author skips nothing and yet doesn’t really delve into anything save for the list of the possible physical gestures. I expected to read more about the design of multi-touch tables and surfaces If developed further, the book can become the bible of gestural interfaces. Apr 12, Kars rated it really liked it Shelves: This is a solid introduction to the field of gestural interfaces, seen from an interaction design perspective.
The main reason for this are the suggestions for further reading that conclude each chapter. Some of these will be familiar to anyone who has been paying attention to the field for some time, but others are more obscure, and therefore very welcome. Pretty superficial treatment of gesture based interaction but not in any way a bad book.
I’d just wish he’d spent more time on certain sections instead of others. Dec 27, Charles-Antoine rated it it was ok. If you are looking for a book dealing with multitouch interfaces, you’ll probably be disappointed. This book embraces the whole thing of ‘Gestural Interfaces’; and there is a bunch of things you’ll learn about these. But regarding the most publicised ‘multitouch’ interfaces like iPhone, Jeff Han or Jacky Chung Leethe book shrinks to a very little number of pages.
Mar 08, Nicole rated it it was amazing. Dan Saffer’s book provides such an easily accessible and well-illustrated introduction to touchscreen and gestural design that for a minute you think “wait, that’s it?
That’s so easy” because he makes good design principles and practices look like child’s play. Jan 03, aya rated it liked it. Mar 26, Marcos Moret added it.
Great overview – these interfaces are going to be ubiquitous in the near future thanks to Siddhi Lizcano for the recommendation. Apr 13, Mabel rated it really liked it.
