Book Review: Don’t Make Me Think

Don’t Make Me Think book cover
Don’t Make Me Think
Steve Krug
2014
★★★★☆

The sem­i­nal web us­abil­ity book. Krug states at the be­gin­ning that you’ll read this book and say, “I al­ready knew that,” and he’s cor­rect if you’re not a be­gin­ner on the sub­ject. One ex­am­ple: users should al­ways be able to see if some­thing is click­able (or tap­pable) with­out hav­ing to ac­tu­ally click or tap. Even with­out any earth-shat­ter­ing rev­e­la­tions, it’s a quick read with good re­minders, and I’d highly rec­om­mend it to any­one in web de­sign or de­vel­op­ment.
