Since<i> Don鈥檛 Make Me Think </i>was first published in 2000, hundreds of thousands of Web designers and developers have relied on usability guru Steve Krug鈥檚 guide to help them understand the principles of intuitive navigation and information design. Witty, commonsensical, and eminently practical, it鈥檚 one of the best-loved and most recommended books on the subject.<br /> <br />Now Steve returns with fresh perspective to reexamine the principles that made<i> Don鈥檛 Make Me Think</i> a classic鈥搘ith updated examples and a new chapter on mobile usability. And it鈥檚 still short, profusely illustrated鈥nd best of all鈥揻un to read.<br /> <br />If you鈥檝e read it before, you鈥檒l rediscover what made <i>Don鈥檛 Make Me Think</i> so essential to Web designers and developers around the world. If you鈥檝e never read it, you鈥檒l see why so many people have said it should be required reading for anyone working on Web sites.<br /> <br /> <br />鈥淎fter reading it over a couple of hours and putting its ideas to work for the past five years, I can say it has done more to improve my abilities as a Web designer than any other book.鈥?lt;br />鈥揓effrey Zeldman, author of Designing with Web Standards <p>聽</p>
