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 ... Read full review

"Don't make me think" actually means don't interrupt the flow of clicks. Navigating a website (or traffic) should not create information overload. Websites should be designed for scanning, offering ... Read full review

A very nice to read book on web usability. I was especially enlightened by the described approach to usability testing, which made a lot of (business) sense to me (and applies equally well to non-web usability). Read full review

An easy read... The advice is pretty common sense now-a-days... Whenever I read a tech book from 1999-2000, it makes me wish I appreciated the tech Bubble more when I was living through it. Read full review

Excellent book about how users actually interact with a web page as opposed to how developers think they'll interact with the page. Short and sweet with enough info to be useful but no so much that it buries you in statistics and studies. Read full review

In general, I can't recommend Steve Krug's book, Don't Make Me Think, enough. I've worked for a web development company, Newfangled Web Factory, since 2004, and we use it as a foundation for how we approach web design and development and feel that Krug's points are routinely proven by our experience in the industry. If you were to speak to any of our project managers about a website, you'd probably hear the words of Steve Krug (perhaps paraphrased) without even knowing it! If you are involved in any web project, pick up a copy as a worthwhile investment. Krug repeatedly points out that because content is the most essential aspect of your web project, is is critical that it be organized and refined well so that your goals are fulfilled. According to Krug, your web goals should essentially be to identify your website and its purpose, establish trust, and provide functionality that will aid the user in getting the value your site proposes to offer.
