"This is a definitely good book to study before you set out to design some new application or website and maybe an inspiration to revisit existing material." - John Collins, news@UK, September 2006

Another great thing that Jenifer does is inline references to other topics in the book and she gives the reader the chapter that those topics are on.
I highly recommend this book for anyone who is starting out in User Interface Design.
Much of interface design is about common trends and assumptions people have when they get on a device and need to manipulate it. This book really outlines those "mental models" and explains them with diagrams and pictures. Being in web design, I know that the mobile world is really taking off, so using design patterns from mobile devices and meshing them with web design is where design trends are going. Rules and habits are different on various devices, and this book really illuminates those areas if you haven't had much experience with software development or mobile usability testing.
Bottom Line: Great foundation book to have a better understanding of how to design for different devices.
Designing Interfaces is a thorough and practical study of the most common design patterns for user interfaces. I found it informative and applicable to my vocation.
