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 style="margin: 0px;"> </p>

<p><strong>Newly updated for 2019, now with 900+ Amazing Resources!</strong><br /></p><p>By now, you've probably come across hundreds of books claiming to help you make money online. What makes this book any different from the masses?<br /></p><p>For starters, this book follows the latest trend in what is currently working online, based on in-depth research. This is done using advanced tools, in conjunction with guidance from experienced masters in the field. Next, prospective resources are thoroughly verified before being shortlisted for this book. Each resource is either making money for the author, or someone associated with him.<br /></p><p><strong>“But aren’t these resources easily available on the internet?”</strong><br /></p><p>Yes, there certainly are, thanks to search engines. Unfortunately, not all of them are legitimate. Whether we like it or not, scams are there everywhere. Why take the risk of not getting paid for your work? You can verify the authenticity of a website if you have the skills, but what about time?<br /></p><p>Would you prefer to spend your time in searching for opportunities and resources, and then verifying if they're legit? Or would you prefer to have someone else do the dirty work so that you can spend your precious time in productive work that actually fills up your bank account? Time is the most important resource, why waste it in research when you can get what you need on a silver platter?<br /></p><p>All resources are routinely monitored. Any issues that the author comes across or receives complains from, is either removed or replaced. You can download updated versions of the book at no extra cost.<br /></p><p><strong>So, how much can you earn?</strong><br /></p><p>There are several resources for performing simple tasks, to earn a few dollars per hour (like typing, filling surveys, etc.) all the way to earning several hundred dollars per hour (like social media marketing) depending on your expertise and skill-sets. You don’t have to worry if you fall short of skills. There are verified learning resources included in the book, which you can check out and use to master your skills. Conservatively, a monthly four figure income is easily doable online.<br /></p><p>If you’re not sure where to begin, there’s a chapter in the book which helps you to determine your niche. This could be web designing, mobile apps, freelance writing, digital marketing, etc. It could even be hobbies like art and craft, painting, music or singing. The book shows you how you can monetize hobbies most effectively. When combined with your passion, it also helps you to stay focused and motivated, for maximum returns on your investment of time and energy.<br /></p><p>Also included in the book is a chapter which helps you determine your goals, so you can plan your schedule and keep a balance between work and relaxation. The book, however, does not include get rich quick schemes. You will certainly need to make efforts, to earn online. This book is also not meant for lazy folks or entertainment seekers. Such books are best found in the fiction category.<br /></p><p>This book is specifically written for folks who are ready to learn, who are ready to take action, who are not afraid of criticism or failure, and who have fire in their belly.<br /></p><p>You can now work for yourself, from the comfort of your home, and at your time and convenience! If you’re already working for a boss, you can start your own side hustle. Once you make a decent chunk of money and you’re confident to continue on this path, you can submit your resignation and do it full time!<br /></p><p>Are you ready to get out of the rat race and become debt free? Are you ready to claim your well deserved financial freedom which you have been only dreaming about? It’s time to take a leap of faith and give it a shot. There is little to lose and a lot to gain. Scroll up and hit the buy button, the book will be yours in minutes. Ignore the low price, it offers much more value!<br /></p>

<div><p>No matter where you are on the organizational ladder, the odds are high that you've delivered a high-stakes presentation to your peers, your boss, your customers, or the general public. Presentation software is one of the few tools that requires professionals to think visually on an almost daily basis. But unlike verbal skills, effective visual expression is not easy, natural, or actively taught in schools or business training programs. <em>slide:ology</em> fills that void.<br /><br />Written by Nancy Duarte, President and CEO of Duarte Design, the firm that created the presentation for Al Gore's Oscar-winning film, <em>An Inconvenient Truth</em>, this book is full of practical approaches to visual story development that can be applied by anyone. The book combines conceptual thinking and inspirational design, with insightful case studies from the world's leading brands. With <em>slide:ology</em> you'll learn to:<br /><br /></p><ul><li>Connect with specific audiences</li><li>Turn ideas into informative graphics</li> <li>Use sketching and diagramming techniques effectively</li><li>Create graphics that enable audiences to process information easily</li><li>Develop truly influential presentations</li><li>Utilize presentation technology to your advantage</li></ul><p>Millions of presentations and billions of slides have been produced -- and most of them miss the mark. <em>slide:ology</em> will challenge your traditional approach to creating slides by teaching you how to be a visual thinker. And it will help your career by creating momentum for your cause.</p></div>
