Overview

The internet has come a long way since its inception. We spend more time online now than ever before, and although we all have different goals and behaviors, none of us want to waste time and energy working out how to use a website.

In this 2013 updated version of the web usability classic Don't Make Me Think, software designer and user experience expert Steve Krug lays out the principles of good website design. Bad design drives users away, but flaws aren't always obvious to those close to a project. A pair of eyes from 'outside the bubble' is invaluable.

Aimed at web developers and anyone with a hand in website design, the book makes a powerful case for clarity, conciseness, and consistency in website design.

"If it's not clear to me what I'm looking at in the first few seconds, interpreting everything else on the page is harder … If I do 'get it' I'm much more likely to correctly interpret everything I see … which greatly improves my chances of having a satisfying, successful experience."
