“Rocket Surgery Made Easy: The Do-It-Yourself Guide to Finding and Fixing Usability Problems” by Steve Krug
I don’t know why Steve Krug’s starts his second book by letting us know that he hates writing. Contrary to his beliefs, I think he is born to explain usability in both verbal and written format. Even though I know a bit about Usability and User Experience, he managed to blow my mind again by putting “scary” (too many) concepts and action into something easily understandable and actionable.
“Rocket surgery made easy” will guide you by identifying problems on your website, app or any product used by humans by observing the user experience (UX) people go through while using it. The book offers simple and yet actionable advice on how to approach the different aspects of usability research.
So, no matter what you do for a living, if you are engaged in product management, development and marketing, do get the book. You will go through the 168 pages within no time, and in the meanwhile, you might learn a couple of new words and definitely have a laugh here and there.
Steve, please write more! You got it all right.
