Overview

In a chaotic world, we all crave simplicity. We don't want to waste time re-configuring our smartphones, fumbling over digital printers, or plodding through online forms while deadlines bear down on us. We want technology that works.

Yet the harder we try to create simple user experiences, the more we tie ourselves up in knots. We are undermined by demands to cram in more features, or lured into approaches that turn out to be more complex than ever.

Simplicity is a discipline that can be learned. This book shows you how-with humor, powerful examples, quotes, and case studies. You'll learn to strip away complexity by organizing, removing, hiding, and displacing. And you'll discover how to create focused, elegant user experiences that people will love.

Very useful tips for designing for usability, although you will have to find the how-to-it's elsewhere.

Almost every sentence you'll read in this book is a practical advice for a simpler experience. It won't give you a step-by-step for designing something from scratch, but all those advices will surely be useful.

This book is full of great reminders to bring a web application developer/user experience architect full circle in their thinking. It helps set the vision of even the smallest application or interface. Very well written and extremely consumable!
