so much for keeping track...

Finished two books around 2 weeks ago... in the process of reading like 10 books at the same time now.

I finished The Elements of User Experience by Jesse James Garrett. A wonderful book on the process helping convince and ask the right questions when developing a website of any nature. Kinda reminded me of Dondis' book on Visual Literacy... It was succint and direct, with every page containing some useful information. My highest critical acclaim for his model also found on his website

Then I finished Don't Make Me Think! my Steve Krug. That was a short and easy reading about web usability. While some of the stuff may be obvious, or maybe just obvious to me, I found his style to be amusing and a relflection of what really goes on in the head of the designer when it comes to designing or the politics surrounding it. His axioms are helpful for any beginners trying to rehaul horribly designed website, but doens't help with any complex solving problems of interaction which I think he maybe should have spent some time explaining.
