Title: Don’t make me think!: A common sense approach to web usability

Author: Steve Krug

Publisher: New Riders

Call Number: TK5105.888 .K78 2006

From the Publisher:

“Five years and more than 100,000 copies after it was first published, it’s hard to imagine anyone working in Web design who hasn’t read Steve Krug’s “instant classic” on Web usability, but people are still discovering it every day.  In this second edition, Steve adds three new chapters in the same style as the original: wry and entertaining, yet loaded with insights and practical advice for novice and veteran alike.  Don’t be surprised if it completely changes the way you think about Web design.”

About the author:

Steve Krug has “spent 20+ years 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 (“just me and a few well-placed mirrors”) is based in Chestnut Hill, MA. He currently spends most of his time teaching usability workshops, consulting, and watching old episodes of Law and Order.”
