<b>The ultimate guide to human-centered design </b><br />Even the smartest among us can feel inept as we fail to figure out which light switch or oven burner to turn on, or whether to push, pull, or slide a door. <br />The fault, argues this ingenious -- even liberating -- book, lies not in ourselves, but in product design that ignores the needs of users and the principles of cognitive psychology. The problems range from ambiguous and hidden controls to arbitrary relationships between controls and functions, coupled with a lack of feedback or other assistance and unreasonable demands on memorization.<i><br /></i><i>The Design of Everyday Things</i> shows that good, usable design is possible. The rules are simple: make things visible, exploit natural relationships that couple function and control, and make intelligent use of constraints. The goal: guide the user effortlessly to the right action on the right control at the right time.<br /><br /><i>The Design of Everyday Things</i> is a powerful primer on how -- and why -- some products satisfy customers while others only frustrate them.<br />

<p><strong>The best-selling phenomenon from Japan that shows us a minimalist life is a happy life.</strong></p><br /><p>Fumio Sasaki is not an enlightened minimalism expert or organizing guru like Marie Kondo—he’s just a regular guy who was stressed out and constantly comparing himself to others, until one day he decided to change his life by saying goodbye to everything he didn’t absolutely need. The effects were remarkable: Sasaki gained true freedom, new focus, and a real sense of gratitude for everything around him. In <em>Goodbye, Things</em> Sasaki modestly shares his personal minimalist experience, offering specific tips on the minimizing process and revealing how the new minimalist movement can not only transform your space but truly enrich your life. The benefits of a minimalist life can be realized by anyone, and Sasaki’s humble vision of true happiness will open your eyes to minimalism’s potential.</p>

<b><i>NEW YORK TIMES</i> BESTSELLER • There’s decorating, and then there’s organizing. From the Instagram-sensation home experts (with a serious fan club that includes Reese Witherspoon, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Mindy Kaling), here is an accessible, room-by-room guide to establishing new order in your home.</b><br /><br />Believe this: every single space in your house has the potential to function efficiently <i>and</i> look great. The mishmash of summer and winter clothes in the closet? Yep. Even the dreaded junk drawer? Consider it done. And the best news: it’s not hard to do—in fact, it's a lot of fun. <br /><br /> From the home organizers who made their orderly eye candy <i>the</i> method that everyone swears by comes Joanna and Clea’s signature approach to decluttering. <i>The Home Edit</i> walks you through paring down your belongings in every room, arranging them in a stunning and easy-to-find way (hello, labels!), and maintaining the system so you don't need another do-over in six months. When you're done, you'll not only know exactly where to find things, but you'll also love the way it looks.<br /><br /> A masterclass and look book in one, <i>The Home Edit</i> is filled with bright photographs and detailed tips, from placing plastic dishware in a drawer where little hands can reach to categorizing pantry items by color (there's nothing like a little ROYGBIV to soothe the soul). Above all, it's like having your best friends at your side to help you turn the chaos into calm.<br /><b><br />PLEASE NOTE: The paperback includes a starter set of labels for your refrigerator; the ebook and audiobook include a link to download and print the labels from a computer (you will need 8-1/2 x 11-inch clear repositionable sticker project paper, such as Avery 4397).</b><br /><b><br />Featured in <i>Glamour</i>'s 10 Books to Help You Live Your Best Life</b>
