    Don't Make Me Think

    Subtitled: A Common Sense Approach to Web Usability.

    As the subtitle says, it is mostly common sense. But to have it reinforced like this turns judging web site designs into a much simpler task. I found myself feeling like I had confirmation for many thoughts I have on the subject, but it raised my awareness of different user view points to a higher level. One item that was quite new to me though was the subject of usability testing. He explains his approach quite well and makes it sound quite easy and very useful. If nothing else, it gives you a sense of empathy for various user experiences on the web. Which can only help you improve your design’s ability to meet their needs.

    I highly recommend anyone who is involved with web development in any way to check out this very quick and easy read.
