Cursing my book reviewers (in a good way)
Categorised under: Book & product reviews
Many readers of this blog, and followers of my Twitter account, will be aware that I’ve been writing a new book. This will hopefully be the textbook for intranet teams tackling intranet design or redesign projects, and I can reveal that it will be called Designing intranets: creating sites that work.
I started work on the book in March, and I’m just putting the finishing touches to it now. I’d already be finished, if it wasn’t for the incredible input I’ve received from folks around the globe.
I’m blessed with a network of wise and experienced professionals, so I sent out an early draft of the book for feedback. Based on the topic of the book, this included sending it to user experience professionals, as well as intranet folks.
I was deluged with amazing suggestions, ideas and improvements. So I’ve now spent another solid week of writing, working through all the comments. Curse you, reviewers!
The book is on track on going to the printers in early August, and then a release date shortly after that. Having just finished the changes, I wanted to give thanks first.
So thank you, from the bottom of my heart, to Gerry Gaffney, Catherine Grenfell, Lukas Karrer, Patrick Kennedy, Sam Marshall, Harry Max, Jane McConnell, Maish Nichani, Nic Price, Martin White and Andrew Wright.
Thanks also to all the intranet managers and intranet teams who have generously shared the many screenshots included in the book.
