    Falls short of what it could have been.

    User Interface Design is a topic which I have always been interested in. I believe it was PCWorld Magazine that used to have a column dedicated to improving the design of a submitted interface, and there were many things I learned from that column. This book seems to work from the basis of that column, but doesn¿t go as far as I would have liked it to. There are many anecdotes included in the book, and they were very illustrative as to the problems people encounter when working with a badly designed interface. I especially liked the concept of the mile-high menu bar that Mac users have, and how that compares to the small footprint that a Windows user must target to open a menu. Still, I was left wanting more. The book serves as a great introduction, but if you¿re already done some UI Design, you might already be familiar with most of what is explained in the book. The anecdotes are what really make the book appealing, but I wouldn¿t recommend purchasing the book just for those. It¿s a good book, it just falls short of what it could have been.
