Product Description

Review

"Norman enlightened me when I was a student of psychology decades ago and he continues to inspire me as a professor of design. His new book underpins all essential aspects of interaction design, the mother of human creation. It equips designers to make the world a safer, more pleasant and more exciting place. The cumulated insights and wisdom of the cross-disciplinary genius Donald Norman are a must for designers and a joy for those who are interested in artifacts and people."--Cees de Bont, Dean, School of Design, and Chair Professor of Industrial Design, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University



"This book changed the field of design. As the pace of technological change accelerates, the principles in this book are increasingly important. The new examples and ideas about design and product development make it essential reading."--Patrick Whitney, Dean, Institute of Design, and Steelcase/Robert C. Pew Professor of Design, Illinois Institute of Technology

"Twenty-five years ago "The Design of Everyday Things" was instrumental in orienting my approach to design. With this latest revised and expanded edition, Don Norman has given me a host of new ideas to explore as well as reminding me of the fundamental principles of great and meaningful design. Part operating manual for designers and part manifesto on the power of designing for people, "The Design of Everyday Things" is even more relevant today than it was when first published."--Tim Brown, CEO, IDEO, and author of "Change by Design"

This book is essential to any sort of designers. It does state some obvious things that usually people take for granted when going through the design process of things.

Even if you aren't a designer though, is still a great book!

Format: Kindle Edition
To anyone who has a small amount of experience in design or who generally thinks about why things are the way they are, this book consistently states the obvious. What's worse is that it does so in a long drawn out way. And then uses an example.
