This book was a lifesaver--or at least a job-saver. With limited knowledge of internet technology and no background at all in design or commercial art, I had to construct from scratch a site for the department in which I work, at very short notice. 'User-Centered Website Development' got straight to the point, giving me the information I needed to produce a site that looked decent and--more important--lets the users get the information they need, easily and quickly. McCracken and Wolfe's philosophy for websites is, skip the bells and whistles and think about what the people using the site really need--and that's how they designed their book, too.
