Since Don’t Make Me Think was first published in 2000, over 400,000 Web designers and developers have relied on Steve Krug’s guide to help them understand the principles of intuitive navigation and information design.

In this 3rd edition, Steve returns with fresh perspective to reexamine the principles that made Don’t Make Me Think a classic-–with updated examples and a new chapter on mobile usability. And it’s still short, profusely illustrated…and best of all–fun to read.

If you’ve read it before, you’ll rediscover what made Don’t Make Me Think so essential to Web designers and developers around the world. If you’ve never read it, you’ll see why so many people have said it should be required reading for anyone working on Web sites. - goodreads

Review of "Don't Make Me Think, Revisited" on 'GoodReads'

3 stars

Quick guide through some things to keep in mind around web usability. Worth a read, took a couple hours on a Friday afternoon.

As it promises, it's all "advanced common sense," it's organized very clearly, and it's very short.

Main takeaways:

- don't confuse the user

- users don't peruse websites, they glance at what seems interesting

- users are only trying to do a few things so those things should be easy

- without physical intuition we need to pay extra attention to avoid confusing users about 'where they are'

- usability testing jankily, early and often is important and easy
