In graphic design in general, it is not uncommon to think about the task as one of communication. This perspective underlies Mullet and Sano’s approach to interaction design, or perhaps more accurately: interface design. The presentation is highly accessible and the examples are chosen effectively.

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0133033899, Paperback)

An excellent introduction to the design theories involved in the creation of user interfaces. Instead of the usual examples and pictures of computer screens and application menus, Mullet approaches the concept of UI from its "outside world" roots. With examples ranging from street signs to corporate logos to the map of the London Underground, each section attacks the issues of interface design from the ground up, appealing first to the eye and then to the mind. Task menus are compared with concert programs and street signs are equated with icons.

This is not a technical book, so advanced developers might want to supplement it with a platform-specific how-to. For aesthetic advice and sheer enjoyment, anyone involved with or interested in interface design should pick it up.
