Rip Off & Useless - DO NOT BUY 2 Dec. 2008
By J. Mitchell - Published on
Format: Hardcover
For someone focusing in information design, he sure filled this with utter trash.

He has idealized huge steps in software design, making biased and baseless claims about a variety of facets of the designing process.

All of the information in this book is common sense and the bare minimum in user information dating all the way back to windows 1.0. There is nothing unique or useful in the information this book communicates.

His diagrams or 'figures' (that contain no quantifiable information) as he calls them are overly simplified and essentially assume an audience of idiots, merely acting as filler to bulk out the book to its measly 200 pages.

Lastly, let me draw attention to his qualifications. BSc in Physics, MA in English and "has also recently taken a software usability engineering course".

For someone writing an apparently 'authoritative' book on usability, you tend not to wish to see the words "has also recently taken a software usability engineering course".

Its a parallel of me watching a documentary on penguins then writing an overpriced 'authoritative book' on their habits.

Unfortunately I paid a ridiculous amount for something I would be embarrassed to use as a door stop, this book is on the fast track to kindling paper.

Summing up, this book is dated and was never relevant at the time of its release.

To be honest, 1 star out of 5 is too much.

What a waste! Do NOT buy this book! 11 Nov. 2009
By Tapas K. Chandra - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I am really surprised that the publisher actually thought of printing the book and the original price for it is designed to sell, is preposterous. The author apparently is clueless, but how could the publisher print such a book. What a waste! The author is absolutely not qualified. I was horrified at the contents of the book. I will zero star!
