Product Description

Product Description

Since Don’t Make Me Think 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.

Now Steve returns with fresh perspective to reexamine the principles that made Don’t Make Me Think 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.

If you’ve read it before, you’ll rediscover what made Don’t Make Me Think 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.


“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.”
–Jeffrey Zeldman, author of Designing with Web Standards

 

About the Author

Steve Krug (pronounced "kroog") is best known as the author of Don't Make Me Think: A Common Sense Approach to Web Usability, now in its second edition with over 350,000 copies in print. Ten years later, he finally gathered enough energy to write another one: the usability testing handbook Rocket Surgery Made Easy: The Do-It-Yourself Guide to Finding and Fixing Usability Problems. The books were based on the 20+ years he's spent as a usability consultant for a wide variety of clients like Apple, Bloomberg.com, Lexus.com, NPR, the International Monetary Fund, and many others.

His consulting firm, Advanced Common Sense ("just me and a few well-placed mirrors") is based in Chestnut Hill, MA. Steve currently spends most of his time teaching usability workshops, consulting, and watching old episodes of Law and Order.

Great book for anyone interested in web development/analytics or for people in the ecommerce field. Some of the points krug brings up seem obvious at first, but are common practices people often neglect in ecommerce. He is clear and concise in his writing style and gets straight to the point. Good additional chapter on mobile as well. Highly recommend.

It's hard to find any short-comings of what basically should be the first UX book anyone reads (2/ed sold over 400,000 copies and was translated in 20+ languages). However, if I had to point two out things with 2/ed, they would be #1 that some of the examples were getting less relevant (many of the website examples just aren't around anymore or look totally different) and #2 that it seemed to focus mainly on web-based sites/apps. Steve addresses both of these in the 3/ed.

Krug has a very rare and unique gift to explain complex ideas and concepts succinctly with good dose of humour. The whole book is only 200 pages (compare with Alan Cooper's About Face 3/ed which is 648 pages and it's supposed to be only the "essentials" on IxD). It truly is short enough "...to read on a long plane ride" as intro says and quite entertaining.

One of the strengths of 3/ed is chp 10, 20 pages on "Mobile: it's not just a city in Alabama anymore". Steve makes some great metaphors, like comparing mobile websites to shrinking a 8.5x11 sheet of paper into postage stamp. This book gives the readers insights that took many of us 15+ years of developing mobile apps to learn (the *hard* way). Also the concepts of affordances and understanding that interfaces don't have cursors is often overlooked. While important for phones and tablets I think they are also just as relevant for non-mobile platforms such as touch-screens devices, kiosks terminals and embedded displays/systems as well.

If you're new to UX or you're a non-UX'er (PM, Dev, QA, Docs, etc) and you're looking to get better acquainted with Usability, I strongly suggest you start with this book.

A most excellent book. I bought this to help our public library redesign our website and other online services. I found it to be well written, relevant, and full of ideas that we could put into place immediately. And you'd expect a book on design to look good, but in terms of visual layout and presentation this one is exceptional.

Good book, easy to read, straight to the point! If it's not your first book on usability or web design, you'll find that you don't learn much more than what you already know, but it's still a good read. It also contains a few nice references that I might pick up (about typography, design, etc.).

A first sight it's just good common sense, but if you scratch the surface it's insightful, not a recipe book for UX/UI/Ergonomic wannabe, not a bible to follow blindly, it give hint on ways to solve problems and the thinking process behind it.

A new topic for me but the author made it a very low barrier for entry. All topics were presented in an easy to understand, common sense way. The format and length of the book enabled me to digest the content in easy to handle segments.

Can't say I got much out of this book. Most of it seems like common sense for anyone who's been using the Internet for the past decade. The title of the book is probably the only real takeaway I got, though it's a very useful one!

Excellent and interesting read. The book was engaging and I finished it very quickly. The book is also great at recommending books from other authors if you want to delve deeper in to a certain subject.
