Summary:
"Today many companies are employing a user centered design (UCD) process, but for many companies, usability begins and ends with the usability test. This book is focused on the requirements gathering stage, which often receives less attention than usability testing, but is equally as important. Understanding users' requirements is critical to the development of a successful product."
