People won't use your web site if they can't find their way around it. Whether you call it usability, ease-of-use, or just good design, companies staking their fortunes and their futures on their Web sites are starting to recognize that it's a bottom-line issue. In Don't Make Me Think, usability expert Steve Krug distills his years of experience and observation into clear, practical--and often amusing--common sense advice for the people in the trenches (the designers, programmers, writers, editors, and Webmasters), the people who tell them what to do (project managers, business planners, and marketing people), and even the people who sign the checks. Krug's clearly explained, easily absorbed principles will help you sleep better at night knowing that all the hard work going into your site is producing something that people will actually want to use.
"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!
