Thomas Biskup recommends: The Design of Everyday Things
"I really believe that most software engineers think too little about the usability of their products. This book provides indepth thoughts on how to design usable items (not necessarily software) and how not to design usable tools. Many issues are adressed and the author shows a profound knowledge of the topics at hand (which is to be expected since he is teaching design for... many years). His writing is concise, yet humourous, which is a definite plus in my opinion. Every software engineer worth his money should be required to read this book!

Please support this website by going to Amazon through one of the links on this website
(if you want to shop at Amazon at all that is ;-). It doesn't
cost you any surcharge, but provides me with ADOM-related income. Thanks!
