From the Author

An Oldie but Still a Goodie
Sure, this book is very old for a computer book, having been published in 1989. But since the book is about design project management and not about technology, it has held up very well. In fact, with the growth of the Web, the need for consistent interface design and for methods to get designers to follow guidelines is stronger than ever. The book has several classic chapters like Bruce Tognazzini's explanation of how Apple ensured consistent user interfaces for the Mac (Tog was Apple's human interface evangelist at the time; he is now the lead Web designer for Healtheon), Dan Rosenberg's analysis of how to estimate the cost-benefit trade-offs in establishing a corporate design standard (Dan was head of UI for Ashton-Tate at the time; he is now head of UI for Oracle), Richard Wolf's chapter on usability as process (Richard was design lead for Lotus 1-2-3 at the time; he is now a program manager for Microsoft Office), and Wendy Kellogg's conceptual analysis of the meanin! ! g of consistency (Wendy is the only contributor to have the same job: Big Blue). --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Not bad for 1989 23 Jan. 2002
By Gerald Egan - Published on
Format: Paperback
This isn't a bad book for 1989. It's not great either.
The problem? Amazon deceptively describes this as a 1st edition published on January 15, 2002. It was published in 1989, as clearly stated inside the book. The content shows its age.

I should have read the other review first. 16 April 2002
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
It is almost criminal for this book to be listed as a "2002" book when all of the content is terribly outdated. Unfortunately I bought it first (not from Amazon) only to find this out. This book is outdated for even a [sale] bin.
