About the Author

Steve Krug managed to labor happily in near-total obscurity as a highly respected usability consultant until the publication of the first edition of Don't Make Me Think. Ten years later, he finally gathered enough energy to write another book: the usability testing handbook Rocket Surgery Made show more 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, is based in Chestnut Hill, MA. Steve currently spends most of his time teaching usability workshops, consulting, and watching black-and-white movies from the '30s and '40s.

The most enjoyable tech book I read. I appreciated the most chapters on Usability testing.

No earth-shatteringly new revelations (as the book was published in 2000, and is now quite dated), however some common sense advice to usability design and usability testing.

Some good insights, but not what I was looking for. I'd hoped there would be more advice in how to deal with with big chunks of content. Chapter 5 deals with "The art of NOT writing for the web", but for me personally it was too short.

Redish|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1348260090s/1135441.jpg|1122676] seems to be more suited for what I need but the sample chapters don't impress me that mucht… (more)
