Prioritizing Web Usability by Jakob Nielsen and Hoa Loranger

Prioritizing Web Usability by Jakob Nielsen and Hoa Loranger

Don't be fooled by the plain cover - this is a brilliant book for anybody designing web sites or writing words for them.

The whole thrust of the text is to put your vanity in a box and lock it away.  Think about the visitors you want to come to your web site, to read your words and buy whatever it is you're selling.

From the back cover...

In 2000, Jakob Nielsen, the world’s leading expert on web usability, published a book that changed how people think about the Web — Designing Web Usability.

Many applauded. A few jeered. But everyone listened.

The best-selling usability guru is back and has revisited his classic guide, joined forces with web usability consultant Hoa Loranger, and created an updated companion book that covers the essential changes to the Web and usability today.

Prioritizing Web Usability is the guide for anyone who wants to take their web site(s) to next level and make usability a priority!

Through the authors’ wisdom, experience, and hundreds of real-world user tests and contemporary web site critiques, you’ll learn about site design, user experience and usability testing, navigation and search capabilities, old guidelines and prioritizing usability issues, page design and layout, content design, and more!
