Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

I stopped reading because I was tempted to steal stuff for my next book!"
—Steve Krug, author of Don't Make Me Think

"I just want it to work!"

That's what "usability" means to the user. It's about whether a product or service does what the user wants—and expects—it to do. And that's what makes people want—or not want—what you have to sell. This book is packed with suggestions, steps, and guidelines to help you create products and services that do what users want. Many of them are unbelievably simple. They just work.

HOW TO CREATE USABLE STUFF

  • Have clear goals for what you want to accomplish
  • Use the checklists in each chapter to help you spot potential problems
  • Learn what makes users happy—or not happy
  • Discover three keys to responsiveness
  • Put logical reasoning to work for you
  • Improve profitability by improving usability
