About the Author
Steve Krug (pronounced "kroog") is best known as the author of Don't Make Me Think: A Common Sense Approach to Web Usability, now in its second edition with over 350,000 copies in print. Ten years later, he finally gathered enough energy to write another one: the usability testing handbook Rocket Surgery Made Easy: The Do-It-Yourself Guide to Finding and Fixing Usability Problems. The books were based on the 20+ years he's spent as a usability consultant for a wide variety of clients like Apple, Bloomberg.com, Lexus.com, NPR, the International Monetary Fund, and many others.
His consulting firm, Advanced Common Sense ("just me and a few well-placed mirrors") is based in Chestnut Hill, MA. Steve currently spends most of his time teaching usability workshops, consulting, and watching old episodes of Law and Order.

I think this book should be read by anyone involved in the website development. Is is easy to read, very practical, full of suggestions and colorful illustrations. I particularly liked a comparison of website sections to street signs, and the idea that there is always "just one more thing". I have to admit it, this book is both informative and entertaining.
Now, I am reviewing the third edition published in 2014. Currently, it is November 2016, so, inevitably, some information is no longer of current interest. Mr. Krug talks about a mobile version of websites, but the book was released before Google's "Mobilegeddon", therefore, not having a mobile site isn't even an option anymore. In the same chapter, he assembled a camera using a lightweight reading lamp and attached detailed instructions and photos. It just made me laugh )) Does it really need the instructions? Besides, why not use a GoPro?
Having said that, I really enjoyed the book. Yes, sometimes, it might a little bit too obvious , but it doesn't diminish the fact that this a very useful reading material for all your team members working on a new website. Have fun!
I'm not an avid reader, but I really enjoyed Don't Make Me Think from cover to cover (or tap to tap on my Kindle). I've worked in product management, content, and UX for years and think this book is a great resource for anyone who wants to learn the basics or have a nice "ahhh that's why" moment regarding the work that they're already doing. While nothing in the book was groundbreaking to me, I'd highly recommend it to anyone who's getting started working on Internet products or college students who think that they want to pursue a career working in online media/apps.
No surprise, Krug's writing style is simple and approachable. Unlike a boring text book, Krug makes the book really fun with helpful (yet obvious) examples that bring some concepts to life. It does a great job of communicating things that people think they know. There's a reason why so many people recommend this book!
Almost all of us have gone to a website that's hard to use or bought a product that required serious thinking to figure out how to use it. Krug uses plain language to describe how to make things easy to use, which makes life a lot easier for product users.
