This book identifies the 13 main challenges designers face when they talk about their work and provides communication strategies so that a better design, not a louder argument, is what makes it into the world.

It is a fact that we all want to put great design into the world, but no product ever makes it out of the building without rounds of reviews, feedback, and signoff. As an interaction or UX designer, you’ve felt the general trend toward faster development, more work, and less discussion. As we spend time crafting, we become attached to our own ideas and it gets all too easy to react to feedback emotionally or dismiss it, when we should be taking the time to decode it and explain or adapt the design. 

Communicating the UX Vision helps you identify the skills and behavioral patterns to present your work in more persuasive ways, and respond more constructively to feedback from coworkers and stakeholders.

This is a great book for people that are trying to learn how to Sell UX to other people at work that don't understand it, or simply don't value it. This book is particularly important to me because I've been searching. I've been searching for anything like this. I can find tons of books about "How the World Should Be for UX Folk". But this particular book is giving me things I can actually do instead of grumble.

This book is also particularly challenging to the people that profess the practice of creating good user experiences. When we UX professionals base everything we do on the needs of the product user, we forget everyone else. How can we claim to have super human powers of empathy, but we can't stand the other stakeholders that hold us back? You will experience some pride shaming when you read the book. And you will get a number of ideas and methods to move forward and to take care of your co-contributors as much as you 'profess' to care about the end user.

How did you lose the ability to empathize with everyone around you? It is simple. We fall into bad habits and manners of thinking that the book calls 'Anti-Patterns'. And no it's not just us that fall into the bad habits.

I really enjoyed this book, especially for its practical value. It is written from the perspective of 13 different anti-patterns, which managers and leader encounter on design projects. The chapter on NOT DEFENDING DESIGN ENOUGH was very insightful.

Each chapter ends with a case study from designers who are working in the field. Their stories provided additional insights to make the lessons from each chapter resonate.

I highly recommend this book to managers and design leads.

This is a stellar overview of anti-patterns providing good historical context, relatable examples, and helpful input for reversing the anti-pattern or implementing good workflow patterns in their stead.
