Unlike "Designing the Obvious", this book does not spend much time on specifics "how-tos" on improving design. Rather, it presents a set of real-life stories of bad designs and how they were (or could have been) improved using the author's advice. The format, along with Hoekman's eminently readable style, make this a fast, enjoyable read.
My only regret about the book is that it cannot be made required reading for anyone delving into web design. If it was, the web would be a better place; as is, you can at least make your site stand out as one of those people actually *want* to visit by reading this book.
