Book Description:

From the Back Cover:

"User Interface Design and Evaluation is comprehensive and clear. It's an amazing achievement -- a textbook in plain English that works both for the classroom and for practitioners learning on their own. It covers the entire user-centered design process with details on the steps and techniques for requirements gathering, design, and evaluation. It includes great stories and case studies as well as engaging exercises. This is a superb book that puts all the pieces together."
--Ginny Redish, Redish & Associates, Inc.

"The book's coverage of traditional HCI notions (e.g., visibility, affordance, feedback, metaphors, mental models, and the like), combined with practical guidelines to contemporary designs (e.g., GUIs, Web) ranks this work among the best in the field, particularly well suited as a textbook for students in a HCI class."
--Andrew Duchowski, Clemson University
