A book you will use again and again


We have several copies of this book at our workplace, and they get passed around often. An excellent learning book, but is also great for a reference later on when you need a "refresher" on syntax. All of the O'Reilly books on Perl I can recommend.

Title: Don't Make Me Think: A Common Sense Approach to Web Usability
Publisher: New Riders Press
Authors: Steve Krug
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
Outstanding


How can a designer or design team truly step back and look at their own website as someone seeing it for the first time? Yes, we may think we do -- but Steve Krug's powerful and effective concept of visualizing people's "thought balloons" as they look over your site and its navigation will change your perspective forever! Using many actual website examples, Krug and his cartoons open your mind to a clear and fundamental look at usability issues. He also skewers the personality issues on the client and developer's side that can adversely affect site building. Yet always beneath the humor is a solid foundation of concise, well grounded, and practical design principles -- among them: Five questions your home page must answer for a new viewer; Six elements ALL your pages should have; and importantly, when and how to do usability testing (on a budget, no less).Common sense never seemed so sensible before! Among my many web design books, this one is on the top of the stack.

The Bible of Redesign


"Web Redesign Worlkflow That Works" is every developers dream. It is the Bible of redesign. This book offers an essential step by step process of developing a web site project. It helps readers to understand how to get the clients perspective and how to deliver above and beyond what is expected in a professional and efficient manner.
How do you get content from the client? How do you budget for site tasks versus site team? How do you know a good client from a bad client? How do you understand your target audience? "Web Redesign Work Flow That Works" answers them all. Every site project has these issues and not going through every step as stated in this book could make or break a project. It's all about the user not only the company.
My company has developed many sites. I only wish I had this book as a resource in 1998 when I first founded my business. I would have saved thousands of hours and heart ache. This book is easy to follow and provides quick links to downloadable forms that help implement the site development process referred to within the book. I recommend this book to any and all involved in developing a site project. IT IS AN EXCELLENT BOOK!!!
