This is a good book if you've never heard about usability. I agree with the review saying it would be time for a review though...
I find it too extremist on some points. A designer would look at this (and surely his website) and say he'll never want to do another website if it has to be that way...

You may not follow all of Jacob Neilson's guidelines, but you can't start any website construction or redesign project without reading this book.

This book is a must for every web developer, although I think it's time for a newer version, as some of the examples and theories are based on pre-2000 studies.
Overall you can expect a great insight on correct web-design, colors matching, liquid pages, use of navigation and quick respond to user needs.

Another excellent source of information from the INTERNET guru of them all! This book is a definite MUST HAVE for any website designer, newbie to web design and anyone and everyone who has an online business. Simple, easy to understand visuals compliment the text, which is written in a very simplistic manner. This book is wonderful - magnificent - excellent, and will help you greatly understand the elements of successful web design. I've used it to consistently update my own website, at:

This book came out in 1999 and you have to be prepared for that. It's still about 80% useful, which is amazing considering how fast web technology is moving. I love the way the author uses lots of actual pictures of websites to illustrate every point. If he would bring it into the third millenium, I'd probably give it five stars instead of three.

I'm a designer and I design web sites for a living, and this book didn't click with me. The topics in the book are repeated over and over and over and over again--simplicity and usability.
A better theme would've been "achieving beauty from simplicity".
While this is a good lesson to learn, unfortunately this makes for boring reading, and Nielson isn't even witty when compared to Edward Tufte.
Pros: Great academic reading, pages are in full color, great for
web designers who can't design and need to conform to
common everyday looking web sites.
Cons: Expensive for the little insights of do's and don'ts,
too much of the insights are really just common sense.

This man can really tell you how to design a website that will satisify user well. He has researched the field of web design and usability stats and knows his stuff. But don't let the man design a webpage by himself. He's a good usability guy, not a good designer.
