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.
From the Publisher
|A Pratical Guide to Simplicity||Master User Experience and Interaction Design from the Developer’s Perspective||Discover a Design Method that Starts with Content, Not Pixels||Crafting Rich Experiences with Progressive Enhancement||A Common Sense Approach to Web Usability|
|Title||Simple and Usable Web, Mobile, and Interaction Design, Second Edition.||The Joy of UX.||Designing Connected Content.||Adaptive Web Design.||Don't Make Me Think, Revisited.|
|Core Concept||Think about design from the user’s perspective; make things feel simple to use.||For modern developers, UX expertise is indispensable. Without outstanding user experience, your software will fail.||Content created just once can be structured and connected to appear all over the place and be reused and remixed.||Understanding progressive enhancement will enable you to visualize experience as a continuum and craft interfaces that are capable of reaching more users while simultaneously costing less money to develop.||Witty, commonsensical, and eminently practical, it’s one of the best-loved and most recommended books on Web design and usability.|
|What You Will Learn||Simplicity is a discipline that can be learned. This book shows you how–with humor, powerful examples, quotes, and case studies.||"Dave has done an excellent job of explaining what developers need to know about UX, in a complete but compact, easy-to-absorb, and implementable form.” - Steve Krug, Author of 'Don't Make Me Think'.||An end-to-end process for building a structured content framework and how to plan and design interfaces for mobile, desktop, voice, and beyond.||How to build elegant, functional websites that work anywhere, won’t break, are accessible by anyone—on any device—and are designed to work well into the future.||The principles of intuitive navigation and information design.|

He is a former President of the UK Usability Professionals' Association and now sits on their Global Advisory Committee.||David S. Platt teaches Programming .NET at Harvard University Extension School and at companies all over the world. He was selected by Microsoft as one of their Software Legends.||Mike Atherton is a content strategist at Facebook and Carrie Hane is the founder of Tanzen, which provides content strategy consulting and training.||Aaron Gustrafson is group manager of the Web Standards Project (WaSP) and serves as an Invited Expert to the World Wide Web Consortium's Open Web Education Alliance (OWEA).||Steve Krug is a highly respected usability consultant who has worked quietly for years for companies like Apple, Netscape, AOL, BarnesandNoble, Excite@Home, and Circle.

The author provides lots of resources in the book (recommended articles, websites, books), and makes it interesting to read.
But like the author said at the beginning of the book: “it’s a thin book”. Some information is pretty abroad, you definitely need more resources if you want to go deeper.
If you need to design a User Interface, this book will guide you on how to avoid confusing the users.
Since this one is not the newest edition, the examples can be dated.
I am very unhappy with the binding (New Riders) for this 2nd edition, however. Not more than an hour into reading the book the binding is falling apart at several places. Now I have a book I thought I'd keep a long time barely being kept together with several pieces of scotch tape.
