Good design is subjective but usability starts to become objective when you realize how predictable people are!
”It’s not rocket surgery”
Steve Krug’s Don’t Make Me Think, is a true classic. Although it was written in 2000 (revised twice), it somehow remains highly relevant to today’s design landscape.
I love this book because it gets back to the basics and to the core of usability.
The book is witty, entertaining and yet loaded with insights and practical advice for novice and veteran alike.
This was the first usability book I read back in 2000 and I immediately became a fan of Steve’s. His no-nonsense approach is great.
”It’s not brain surgery”
I’ve also read the revised ones and for anyone who works with the web this book is a must read.
