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. Three New Chapters! * Usability as common courtesy -- Why people really leave Web sites * Web Accessibility, CSS, and you -- Making sites usable and accessible * Help! My boss wants me to ______. -- Surviving executive design whims "I thought usability was the enemy of design until I read the first edition of this book. Don't Make Me Think! showed me how to put myself in the position of the person who uses my site. After reading it over a couple of hours and putting its ideas to work for the past five years, I can say it has done more to improve my abilities as a Web designer than any other book. In this second edition, Steve Krug adds essential ammunition for those whose bosses, clients, stakeholders, and marketing managers insist on doing the wrong thing. If you design, write, program, own, or manage Web sites, you must read this book." -- Jeffrey Zeldman, author of Designing with Web Standards

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!
