About the Author
Called the world's leading expert on Web usability by US News and World Report, Jakob Nielsen today serves as user advocate and principal of the Nielsen Norman Group. In the course of a career in which he held influential positions at Sun Microsystems, Bellcore, and IBM's T.J. Watson Research Center, Nielsen founded the "discount usability engineering" movement for fast and cheap improvements of user interfaces and invented several usability methods, including heuristic evaluation. He holds 58 US patents, many of which focus on ways to make the Internet easier to use. He has written the Alertbox column on Web usability since 1995 and is the author of Designing Web Usability: The Practice of Simplicity and Usability Engineering, plus eight other books.
Top Customer Reviews
Apart from students, this book is suitable for everyone who has something to do with hypertext and multimedia or who is interested in (one of) those two concepts. For the unexperienced readers (people who don't know anything about multimedia and hypertext) this book is an excellent introduction. Nielsen discusses, for example, the history as well as the future of multimedia and hypertext on the internet. Readers who are experienced in this field can learn a lot from Nielsen's user-friendly approach towards hypertext and multimedia. (Like in his book "Usability Engineering" the user is a central aspect in hypertext and multimedia design)
In Multimedia and Hypertext Nielsen answers questions like: What is hypertext and how can we use it in different kinds of applications? How does copyright work on the internet? How can we organise large amounts of information in a user-friendly way? All this is richly illustrated with clear examples of modern hypertext & multimedia systems (both) in word and image. Chapter 2 gives an example of a hypertext system created by the author himself!

of hypermedia, with plenty of examples and empirical
evidence to back up his claims. A good book to have
on the shelf and peruse BEFORE you start your next Web
project: someone else has probably already done something
similar, so why not see what they did first before trying
to reinvent the wheel?
