  • Rocket Surgery Made Easy | In usability we trust
    more enjoyable to read It s not a long book As he states himself it s short enough to read on a long flight I think that s a good thing I really enjoy Steve s pragmatic approach to the subject He manages to demystify the subject and make the case that anyone well almost anyone can perform usability tests and benefit greatly from it Throughout the book he delivers maxims which contains the most important points Two of my favorites are A morning a month that s all we ask and Start earlier than you think makes sense The book also contains lots of extra material such as sample test scripts a consent form and a video of him actually performing a usability test You can watch the video yourself from the book s companion site I think that these add greatly to the value of the book since they provide you with concrete tools to get started Conclusion If you re interested in usability testing already do them or plan to start doing them this is definitely a book for you It does not have all the answers but will provide you with all the information you need to get started If you ve conducted usability test before I m sure that you will still find lots of useful information All in all this is a great book and I highly recommend it If you haven t read his first book Don t Make Me Think already I highly recommend that you read it too Book information Title Rocket Surgery Made Easy Author Steve Krug Publisher New Riders Press 1 edition December 18 2009 Pages 168 ISBN 0 321 65729 2 ISBN 13 978 0 321 65729 9 Buy from Amazon com Buy from Adlibris com Sweden Further

    he shares his thought about the concept Quick tips UX Previous post A List Aparts annual survey Next post Rocket Surgery Made Easy 2 Comments Jan Seidl March 16 2010 at 7 23 am This is very interesting Although the look n feel is quite apple ish this is not what popped in my eyes but the fact of auto filtering actions and profling to adapt the system to the user needs In addition the profiling could be used to optimize system resources within user needs whether he needs faster disk access faster processing or whatelse he may need The scrollable desktop is nice but it is quite limited I am very satisfied with the way that KDE and Gnome NIX BSD graphic environments manage their multi desktop panes as much as you need even more with compiz making all the eye candy PS Hey Gabe sorry long time no see been quite busy and not reading my feeds Keep up the good work Reply Tragaperras October 22 2010 at 8 11 pm Did you see the news that Apple revealed today OS X 10 7 The Lion this is it s name seems to have some great new features
