Targeted at the novice level, this book is a great read for anyone looking to enter the UX field, or looking to have a more informed conversation with a UX professional.

If you are already familiar with UX terms and procedures it's still an interesting read, as Krug writes with a very conversation style, and injects a lot of humour into the text. There will certainly be a handful of new insights to be gleaned, and the chapter on accessibility and the reading list at the end are worth the price alone.

I am particularly impressed with the amount of online support that accompanies this book, including whole chapters of material left out from the previous edition. I would highly recommend reading the additional material he makes available on his website, as it really fleshes out the practical application capabilities of the knowledge he is imparting.
A great value at the price; buy a copy for yourself, and one for your favourite designer friend. They'll thank you for it!

The book provides some basic usability advice and conventions that can be applied to a web property to increase user experience. It is an easy book to read and can be consumed in a few hours.

The content of Don't Make Me Think is simple and that's why it works. Many fundamental design principles are included and Krug breaks them all down in simple English.

The only flaw from my perspective is the portion on usability testing, which doesn't apply to freelancers or non-business owners. Unless you have the time to get several people to test your site there just isn't any relevance.

Good read.

This book has a lot of helpful tips and very informative. I find it helpful to know what is good for the web and it has examples of good websites versus bad ones. A bit lengthy still. I like the visuals in this. It helps to explain what the author is referring to.

The book is short. The book is written in an easily understandable way. I don't it adequate for someone who wants to take the web design or development seriously.
Since this one is not the newest edition, the examples can be dated.

This is a great reference with lot's of good practical information, but I'm kind of disappointed with the index. It's very skimpy, which makes it hard to find specific information. That's why I give it only 4 stars and not 5.

Vary basic stuff. Presented very nicely and in a very fun way.

Pretty basic. But also pretty important.
