For those of you that work in the design sector, Gjoko Muratovski’s Research for Designers is a serious and useful survey on research and research methods written specifically for the needs of designers. Full disclosure: I wrote the foreword. When I read the manuscript, I found this book to be what I look for in a survey text.
The book is published by Sage. The book web site is at URL:
Sage has released a sampler with the Table of Contents, the Foreword, and the Preface. You can download this from Gjoko Muratovski’s Academia page at URL:
A significant number of universities and design schools are already adopting Muratovski’s as a text. If you wish to consider this book for use in your courses, Sage will provide you with an examination copy.
Just contact Michael Ainsley at Sage:

In my view, Research for Designers is a major contribution to the future of our field. You can order an examination copy of the book to reach your own conclusion.
