This is a great book for anyone wanting to learn the psychology behind how people retain information and how to apply this to their designs. It's written in such a clear and concise manner that it is easy to read cover to cover in one shot (at least for me). It was so interesting I could hardly put it down! I would highly recommend it to anyone who is involved in design regardless if it is online or not. Fascinating.

I especially like that the chapters are short. They are snippets of facts expounded into 2 pages. This makes the book easy to read, taking it one chapter at a time. I started with one chapter per day until I couldn't put it down anymore.

The science around design are interesting, and while Weinschenk struck a pretty good balance between theories and practise, I would've loved to see more practical examples of the theories in a typical life scenario.

I'm really happy with this book. I like that she's using real research and providing a number of links to other resources to back up what she's saying. Because it's so nicely broken up into short chapters, it's also useful as a quick reference after you've finished looking through it.

The book is quite focused on web and interface design, and it would have been nice if the book indicated that more clearly, but I still feel the information within can be applied to most types of design. I'm still getting lots of good ideas.

The psychology behind a good web design. What attracts a user to this website and why. An excellent book to read before designing websites for personal or business use.
