Since transitioning from UX design to UX research in my 9-to-5 job, I’ve been devouring books on research, just like how some people change t-shirts.

Despite having conducted over 1,000 interviews in my tech career over the past decade (which isn’t nothing, but…), I still felt there was room for improvement in my skills to interview stakeholders effectively. That’s when I stumbled upon Tomer Sharon’s book, ‘It’s Our Research,’ and instantly fell in love with it as one of the best resources on stakeholder management for UX researchers.
