Over half of the beginning of the book is a giant wake up call showing what's wrong with the way that software is (and is not) designed. Extended anecdotes and repetition contribute to the length.

Only at the 60-70% mark is a solution presented: Personas, and involving design at the beginning of the development process.

Definitely there is good content in this book, particularly if you are NOT already convinced that there is something wrong with the way software is currently designed, however the presentation is a lot more long-winded then I prefer.

Still very actual. A must for developers.

Cooper has a tremendous insight from multiple experiences and points of view. Who is this for? Anyone involved in producing software: a programmer, designer, product manager, owner of a company (big or small).

I produce software systems and have to work with a lot of other people's software. In many instances, I know DESIGN WAS NOT PART OF THE DEVELOPMENT CYCLE.

This is a keeper!

If you write, design, test, use, or touch software in anyway you probably should read this book.

This put into works frustrations I've had as a developer for over 20 years. It is time for the inmates to stop running the asylum.

This book completely changed the way I think about designing software. The concepts apply to more than just software though. I highly recommend any engineer to read this book.

Every time I buy this book, I let someone borrow it and never get it back. It's obviously a good book.
