Don't Make Me Think, Revisited
A Common Sense Approach to Web Usability
Paperback ISBN: 0321965515
Since it was first published in 2000, hundreds of thousands of Web designers and developers have relied on usability guru Steve Krug's guide to understand the principles of intuitive navigation and information design. Witty, commonsensical, and eminently practical, it's one of the best loved and most recommended books on the subject. It's a core foundational book that every Web designer must internalize to make their designs truly effective. In this substantially revised edition, Steve returns with fresh perspective to reconsider the principles he originally laid out--commenting, amending, amplifying, and offering fresh new examples to underscore their importance. This edition adds an important new chapter on mobile as well as integrating coverage of mobile throughout. It's a complete reimagining of the concepts that made this book an instant classic.

Developing Web Site Documentation for Design And Planning
1st Edition Paperback ISBN: 0321392353
It's up to the designer to not only do it right but also to let the client see what's being done, and to capture ideas, track progress, and make sure everyone is singing from the same page. Consultant Brown describes the ten basic deliverables as belonging to three basic types, thereby making it much easier to sort out who gets what and when. He works in layers with user needs documents (personas, usability test plans and usability reports), strategy documents (competitive analyses, concept models, and content inventory) and finally with design documents (site maps, flow charts, wire frames and screen designs) on top. The logic of Brown's ideas works well at a practical as well as theoretical basis, because he shows why user needs and strategy documents come first, before planners start playing with all the cool software.
