I’ve just finished reading the book “Don’t Make Me Think!” by Steve Krug today. I’d have to say that if you haven’t read this book and you are into anything to do with web design or application design and development this would be a good read.
The book is short and to the point, I read it in 2 days casually, and covers quite a bit of thoughts and theory on what is good and bad about usablity on the web.
A lot of the items in the book made me nod my head in agreement and every once in a while I had to say, “hey, that’s right!” kind of realizing something I didn’t really think about before. The good thing is that I have so much diverse experience to draw from in that I do understand what the author is talking about and not just going to be applying the information found in this book in future sites and applications. But the examples in this book sure made me go back and think on the solutions that we used for certain sites and where we could have improved.
If you have a few bucks and are looking for a book to help you see some more views on usablity on the web and online applications etc, then I think this is a pretty good book. To the point, no delays, no superficial crap to read through like a lot of books out there and it’s short so it doesn’t take too much time to get through.
All in all it gets an 8 out of 10 from me 🙂
Don’t Make Me Think!
