Very good. Appearance of only slight previous use. Cover and binding show a little wear. All pages are undamaged with potentially only a few, small markings. Help save a tree. Buy all your used books from Thriftbooks. Read. Recycle and Reuse.
Good. Connecting readers with great books since 1972. Used books may not include companion materials, some shelf wear, may contain highlighting/notes, and may not include cd-rom or access codes. Customer service is our top priority!
"Don't Make Me Think" is an excellent work for anyone pursuing the art of web design. Krug opens many doors for review and inclusion by web designers. Very much recommend!

Forgotten common sense recalled.
When you read Steve's book you realise that sometimes one forgets to use common sense. After reading this book you will look at website construction in a different light.

Great, but dated.
Were it still the year 2000, when Steve Krug wrote this book, I would be using words like "revolutionary" and "pure genius" to describe Don't Make Me Think. The title itself is the concept of how you should design your site - create it in a way that the users seamlessly navigate through it, without having to think about what they're doing. It's true, but how do you get to that state? This part is where Krug's advice is still, sadly, quite relevant - it's all about usabililty testing. For that alone, plus the fact you can read this book in a single day, make it well worth the price. But don't expect a revolution.

This book is really good to know how to build your website and do some testing before publishing your final version.
It's easy to read, short and direct to the point, well illustrated and have a touch of humour in it.
Recommanded if you build websites for you or for others!
