Sep 14, 2005: Two New Books

Two great friends have new books out that are well worth reading:

One you already know: the second edition of Steve Krug's classic Don't Make Me Think! has just come out. Three new chapters "...that explain why people really leave Web sites (Usability as Common Courtesy), how to make sites usable and accessible (Web Accessibility, CSS, and You), and the art of surviving executive design whims (Help! My Boss Wants Me to ____), plus a new preface and updated recommended reading." $23.10 from Amazon, and already at #771 on their sales ranking list.

Also ascending Amazon's hit parade is Peter Morville's new book, Ambient Findability. "The book's central thesis is that information literacy, information architecture, and usability are all critical components of this new world order." The zoo's not the same since Peter left me with the rest of the polar bears and shambled over to the lemur cage. $19.77 from Amazon.

Way to go guys!
