Really easy to process book on usability. This is good for a quick read as its explained really really well. Try it on a train or plane for sure you will find it nice.

There's no point is adding my voice to the many other positive reviews here. It's a complete no-brainer that any one involved in web site build or maintentance - be they designer, developer or business stakeholder - should read and digest this book, not just once but on a regular basis.

BUT ... is there anyone else who has found their copy of DON'T MAKE ME THINK has fallen apart within a few weeks of moderate daily use? Shouldn't a book like this be built to withstand the regular handling that the content deserves?

Or is just that I'm heavy-handed?

Brilliant book, can't recommend it enough. Even tho some examples are a little dated the theory is just as applicable now as it ever was so don't let that put you off.

I'd recommend anyone who's into web related industries to read this. It definitely helped change the way I think about web design and ensuring simplicity in the design process.

Nice easy read to and well written.

If you work in IT then this is one of those must-have classic texts. It's short and to the point but everything is well explained with the help of great pictures and screenshots. Steve Krug points out all those small things which when added together can spoil the user's experience and simply send them away! It should be noted that the one website that the author holds up the most often as the best example is Amazon.

A must-read for anyone interested in web design. The second edition adds important updates but the principles will always be the same.

Despite my 3 star rating there's nothing overly wrong or bad with this book. It's just that it's for beginners - junior designers etc, and won't offer anyone more experienced in the field anything of value.

Worth a read if you're a junior design, just starting out or some kind of marketing type who works with websites.

A wonderful little book that really opens your eyes to usability issues that are so obvious but are still overlooked. Time and again a light bulb lights up in your brain as you read this and you think god it is so obvious why didn't I notice that before?

The great thing is you can read this book in one sitting and finish an enlightened usability expert ready to impress your colleagues with your new found knowledge.

If you have a website or are thinking of getting one, and especially if you're not technical - then you have to get this book. Actually techncial IT people need to read this as well.

Easy to read. Easy to comprehend. Lots of examples. Hands-on book that will become your reference bible for website design. If you're starting a web based business and could only buy one book - this is it!

I've worked in the UX space for a few years now, but still keep referring back to this. Really easy to digest, quick to read, entertaining. Fantastic. A must read for anyone in front-end design and engineering.

Though the internet and its protocols moves at a fast pace, leaving some aspects of the book understandably a little dated, the basics are invaluable and immediately useful and Krug does a good job of 'rubbing your nose' in the common sense steps that anyone using the web needs to keep in mind.
