As the world grows beyond the understanding of any one Renaissance man or woman, Donald Norman's missive is well timed. Every product designer is an interaction designer whether they want to be or not.(Robert Blinn Core77)
The world, it seems, is becoming ever more complex. While some view this as a problem, Don Norman sees it as an opportunity. In Living with Complexity, he brilliantly shows how, in a partnership between users and designers, we can tame the ravages of complex technology and complex situations to create experiences that work.(Tim Brown, CEO and president, IDEO)
... you will like Norman's calm voice, keen observations and sage counsel about what could be done. Read his book.(Geoffrey K. Pullum Times Higher Education)

Other reviewers will go into the details of what the book discusses, but I'll just say that as a user experience professional, I enjoyed the book tremendously. I found that a lot of the topics he mentions are challenges I have to deal with everyday and hit close to home.
Good book that was fun to read. Good job Don -- keep'em coming!
