Yesterday's Web looked far different from today's Web, and tomorrow's Web will look more different still. Amidst all of this change, however, one aspect of Web use remains the same: The sites that offer the best, easiest, most intuitive experience are the ones people visit again and again. To ensure that your sites provide that experience, this guide from usability guru Krug distills his years of on-the-job experience into a practical primer on the do's and don'ts of good Web design. The second edition of this classic adds three new chapters that explain why people really leave Web sites, how to make sites usable and accessible, and the art of surviving executive design whims, plus a new preface and updated recommended reading.--From publisher description.… (more)

Nice quick read (3-4 hours) with very basic principles for making a usable UI. Even though it's Web based, some of the principles apply to any software application. I love this book and am passing it around to anybody at work that is interested in making usable interfaces. ( )

This book was suggested as a good resource for me, as I'm in the process of re-designing my company's website. It was very useful, and would have been even more valuable if I wasn't working with a web designer who already knows some of this stuff. It's not cheap though. I was lucky to swap for it but it costs $40 retail, which seems like a lot for what it was. ( )
