Hello everyone,

So here is a list of books that have helped me along the way and some that Im currently reading. 

 
Over the years I have also learned that everyone works and learns things differently so I suggest– reading exactly what you’re having trouble right now and go in your own pace. Books are great but they can also be overwhelming because theres so much stuff out there but just grab what you need and please experiment with it right after to test if you understood. 
 
I currently have the 1st and 2nd Edition to “The Project Guide to UX Design”  on my desk so feel free to come by Bldng 8 in Palo Alto if you wanna barrow it. The Second Edition is my favorite because it explains in more detail the importance about Personas (Ch. 7), Wireframing, prototyping and if you are really into content strategy, please also check out the Lead Content Strategist at Facebook, Jonathon Colman(http://www.jonathoncolman.org/). Tons of free material on his site and useful information. I met him at an event this past year and he’s brilliant.  I highly recommend him. 
 
Ill post more resources soon but feel free to get in touch if you have any questions. Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish.
 
Cheers, 
Phil
