Don’t Make Me Think

I found the book Don’t Make Me Think!: A Common Sense Approach to Web Usability very interesting, it really helped me to propose better solutions thinking and acting like the final user, trying to solve their problems and make their life far easier.

Don't Make me Think

Anyone involved with online solutions and usability projects will recognise most, if not all, of the concepts covered in the book. What makes the book usable is that it is a great checklist to ensure you have covered all the basics.

Lets face it, nowadays where we all have to do more with less (in less time, money and effort), we do not have time to research all we would like about web usability.

With Krug’s 3rd law of usability (“Omit (needless) words”), he has done a fantastic job of doing just that with his book. The book itself is a stellar example of usability. Every graphic adds value and every paragraph amplifies the point. Colour is effectively used, but not exclusively. Krug practices the techniques that he preaches.

I highly recommend this book to designers, developers marketers who constantly work to improve their sites and whose goal is to maximise the user experience.
