I did find UUXD to be great for its practical advice, but not very deep in regards to theory. It contains a lot of basics that are wonderful for its intended audience. The value for the more seasoned UX practitioner would be the reading tips at the end of each chapter and the online resources and tools it mentioned throughout. Practical advice that goes beyond most UX books!

Personas provide valuable insight into your audience’s minds. You will make a better product if you keep your personas in mind while developing.
