People won't use your web site if they can't find their way around it. Whether you call it usability, ease-of-use, or just good design, companies staking their fortunes and their futures on their Web sites are starting to recognize that it's a bottom-line issue. In Don't Make Me Think, usability expert Steve Krug distills his years of experience and observation into clear, practical--and often amusing--common sense advice for the people in the trenches (the designers, programmers, writers, editors, and Webmasters), the people who tell them what to do (project managers, business planners, and marketing people), and even the people who sign the checks.

This book is absolutely wonderful. Being a book on usability, the book itself is highly usable.

1. It is a small book; every second you spend reading it is well spent.
2. All of it is tasty meat -- a lot of useful information with zero bullshit.
3. The author knows his stuff.
4. Comics and anecdotes add variety and support understanding.
5. Examples of well designed and badly designed sites.
6. Easily comprehensible.

Go read this book if you make websites, write for websites, make decisions regarding websites. Really, you should read this book :)

Also, you may enjoy reading [b:The Design of Everyday Things|840|The Design of Everyday Things|Donald A. Norman|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1348635614s/840.jpg|18518]. ( )
