In 2000, Jakob Nielsen, the world’s leading expert on Web usability, published a book that changed how people think about the Web—Designing Web Usability (New Riders). Many applauded. A few jeered. But everyone listened. The best-selling usability guru is back and has revisited his classic guide, joined forces with Web usability consultant Hoa Loranger, and created an updated companion book that covers the essential changes to the Web and usability today. Prioritizing Web Usability is the guide for anyone who wants to take their Web site(s) to next level and make usability a priority! Through the authors’ wisdom, experience, and hundreds of real-world user tests and contemporary Web site critiques, you’ll learn about site design, user experience and usability testing, navigation and search capabilities, old guidelines and prioritizing usability issues, page design and layout, content design, and more!

This book contains good information for those who plan to, or already do, design web sites as a career.
A tour de force: authoritative, perceptive, engaging.
Delivers great value for anyone interested in cutting through the mumbo jumbo and gaining a grasp of what really makes web sites succeed, or not.
Thoroughly, and pertinently, illustrated, it shows the what and why of smart development and design. And the text is surprisingly agile, crackling with insights.
Some of the old-timers on my reference shelf have had to hitch over for this one. Prioritizing Web Usability surpasses its own high standards of usefulness.
