Software’s everywhere: in your PC, your car, your camera, your alarm clock. Why is so much of it so darned infuriating? Because the inmates, a.k.a. programmers, are running the asylum, says Alan Cooper. He thinks it’s about time we became far more sophisticated, far more conscious about designing our software -- not just coding and shipping it.
The first edition of Cooper’s The Inmates Are Running the Asylum became an instant classic. It’s helped drive significant improvements in software usability -- among the fraction of business and technical leaders who’ve taken it to heart. Now the book’s returned, with a thoughtful new preface. If you missed it the first time, don’t miss it this time: Its message is more urgent and compelling than ever. Bill Camarda
