Product Description
Customer Reviews
Since<i> Don’t Make Me Think </i>was first published in 2000, hundreds of thousands of Web designers and developers have relied on usability guru Steve Krug’s guide to help them understand the principles of intuitive navigation and information design. Witty, commonsensical, and eminently practical, it’s one of the best-loved and most recommended books on the subject.<br /> <br />Now Steve returns with fresh perspective to reexamine the principles that made<i> Don’t Make Me Think</i> a classic–with updated examples and a new chapter on mobile usability. And it’s still short, profusely illustrated…and best of all–fun to read.<br /> <br />If you’ve read it before, you’ll rediscover what made <i>Don’t Make Me Think</i> so essential to Web designers and developers around the world. If you’ve never read it, you’ll see why so many people have said it should be required reading for anyone working on Web sites.<br /> <br /> <br />“After reading it over a couple of hours and putting its ideas to work for the past five years, I can say it has done more to improve my abilities as a Web designer than any other book.”<br />–Jeffrey Zeldman, author of Designing with Web Standards <p> </p>

<p>In <i>User Friendly</i>, Cliff Kuang and Robert Fabricant reveal the untold story of a paradigm that quietly rules our modern lives: the assumption that machines should anticipate what we need. Spanning over a century of sweeping changes, from women’s rights to the Great Depression to World War II to the rise of the digital era, this book unpacks the ways in which the world has been—and continues to be—remade according to the principles of the once-obscure discipline of user-experience design.</p><p>In this essential text, Kuang and Fabricant map the hidden rules of the designed world and shed light on how those rules have caused our world to change—an underappreciated but essential history that’s pieced together for the first time. Combining the expertise and insight of a leading journalist and a pioneering designer, <i>User Friendly</i> provides a definitive, thoughtful, and practical perspective on a topic that has rapidly gone from arcane to urgent to inescapable. In <i>User Friendly</i>, Kuang and Fabricant tell the whole story for the first time—and you’ll never interact with technology the same way again.</p>
