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
This book is the Tops!

I bought this book because I thought it would help me tame my own sci-fi hobby site...; all I can say is wow, wow, wow.
Steve Krug tells you everything you need to know about effective interface design, from the most valuable point of view of all ... that of the user.
I'm really fired up about applying all SK's killer interface ideas to my own site. The only problem is, he's made me realize how badly laid out my site is at the moment. My re-design is going to take flipping years.
Ho hum. But anyway, this book is a classic. I have already passed it around my day-job firm's web team and studio, and they all agree that this is the best tome they have read on the subject to date.
If you only buy one book on web site usability, make it this cracker. Great advice, fab typesetting and you should be able to read it three daily train commutes (I did).

This book must be the first book you turn to if you want to learn C++. It must be read from cover to cover. Then read some of the more advanced books like Effective C++.

Official (ISC) 2 Guide to the CISSP Exam

This was my favorite book for studying for the CISSP exam because it provides information directly related to what is needed to know to pass. I recommend it for anyone taking the CISSP or for anyone who wants to gain a basic understanding of the broad range of information system security topics. I found the level of detail beneficial and continue to use it as a reference tool.
