Book Cover for Steve Krug's 2nd Edition of Dont Make Me Think

You can listen to the show here, but we’d love for everyone to subscribe to the show in iTunes! Don’t forget to leave feedback and thanks for listening! :)

It’s Episode 3 and our book is Don’t Make Me Think: A Common Sense Approach to Web Usability by Steve Krug.

We get a little off subject a couple times, but hopefully you find our tangents about cat science, moms on the internet  and organizing your code amusing.

We do discuss the book though! This is a must have for any web designer that has sold over 300,000 copies (according to Steve Krug’s website.)

Some of the stuff we reference in this episode that you may want to check up on; Steve Krug’s latest book, Rocket Surgery Made Easy: The Do-It-Yourself Guide to Finding and Fixing Usability, or CSS Zen Garden,

Read it yourself

Buy online at Amazon.
Also on Kindle.

What are we reading for November? If you want to know, you’ll have to listen to this episode! If you have suggestions for future books to be read for the show, questions for us or just something you need to say — contact us on FacebookTwitter, join our GoodReads Pagebreak Podcast group or send us an email.

    Hey Kyle - checking out the contact form - sorry about that.

    Glad you like our rambling :)

    I enjoyed the tangents.

    Re: Textmate - The HTML Bundle has a “Tidy” item that should format things pretty nicely. ^+Shift+H

    Rocket Surgery isn’t really Volume 2 of Don’t Make Me Think, as it’s pretty much all on usability testing - not the same format as DMMT. Useful if you want to start doing a lot of usability testing, but I was expecting DMMT Volume 2 and was a tad disappointed.

    Also, I emailed you via the Contact Form a week or two back - maybe it’s not working?
