Steve has proved that usability is common sense. I really enjoyed the book. Reading through chapter 9 "Usability testing on 10 cents a day", anybody can feel that can run a short usability test on his own. This is good since most companies think that they have to invest a great deal of money in usability. I would recommend the book to anybody interested in finding out that usability IS common sense.

As a web designer, sometimes I find myself assuming my websites are user freindly. Well, we all know what assuming gets you.
Most of the information is common sense. I wish my managers and marketing people would read this book. It would make my life a whole lot easier.
Recommended, but I wouldn't stop here. My next book is "Designing Web Usability" by Jakob Nielson

At last -- a usability book with a friendly voice!
Good looking, well edited, well proofread, short and to the point: a clearly-written summary of how to make Web sites easier to use.
I'd give it five stars but for the fact that there's nothing really new or radical here, and it's expensive for a 195-page book.
More please, Steve Krug!

If you need to read something about usability, buy this book. It's simple, nice and clear. Goes straight to the point and with a very friendly way to describe each theme.
Krug really knows how to reach the reader and the user, something that "guru" Nielsen never acchieves.

If you haven't read this book, then you're not doing your job as a designer/programmer/project manager.
Easy to read, great examples and smart/funny writing makes this simply the best book out there on this topic.
Krug nailed it. Buy this book now.

This book is deffinantly worth having, but don't take it as the bible. It's humor is fun, and it doesn't take a huge time investment to read.

Excelent introductory book on usability. This is the least every person related to web development should know about usability

Another Outsource Marketing favorite!
Steve Krug couldn't have done a better job titling his book "Don't Make Me Think: A Common Sense Approach to Web Usability." It's filled with common sense approaches that help website developers, writers, designers, and architects create sites that decrease cognitive load and telegraph ideas quicker.
He practices what he preaches: the graphics, layout and copy are brilliantly executed. Complex ideas are made simple with clear charts and graphs. Technical terms are written clearly so non-technical people will easily understand. And this excellent book is one of those rare quick reads with substance.
After reading this book, check out Jakob Nielsen's "Designing Web Usability." The two books combined will give you a great foundational understanding of web usability.
