Very good for Web design newcomers;some interest for experts
25 January 2000
Jackob Nielsen is an inspiring effective Web Guru. Unlike many Web commentators he has also worked on many research and commerical Web developments. He knows what he is talking about.
For newcomers to Web design (or others interested in the area, e.g. strategic managers) this is an excellent overview of what makes a web site work (from a usability) point of view. Nielsen also gives some insights into the way the Web is going (e.g., what content will / will not work).
This book is _quite_ suitable for some University level courses in Web technologies. However, the lack of an in-book set of references is a drawback (there is an online bibliography).
