Even the smartest among us can feel inept as we fail to figure out which light switch or oven burner to turn on, or whether to push, pull, or slide a door. The fault, argues this ingenious,even liberating,book, lies not in ourselves, but in product design that ignores the needs of users and the principles of cognitive psychology. The problems range from ambiguous and hidden controls to arbitrary relationships between controls and functions, coupled with a lack of feedback or other assistance and unreasonable demands on memorization. The Design of Everyday Things shows that good, usable design is possible. The rules are simple: make things visible, exploit natural relationships that couple function and control, and make intelligent use of constraints. The goal: guide the user effortlessly to the right action on the right control at the right time.In this entertaining and insightful analysis, cognitive scientist Don Norman hails excellence of design as the most important key to regaining the competitive edge in influencing consumer behaviour. Now fully expanded and updated, with a new introduction by the author, The Design of Everyday Things is a powerful primer on how,and why,some products satisfy customers while others only frustrate them.

  1. Får en att se på produkter med helt nya ögon!
    Robrond (Luleå), 10 oktober 2014

    Denna bok får en att se på produkter man möter på ett helt nytt sätt. Att man gör fel när man använder saker beror sällan på mänskliga faktorn. Det beror snarare på missar i designen. En bra bok att läsa för alla som arbetar med produktutveckling!

  2. Bra bok om design
    Ulla, 7 februari 2014

    Boken är lättläst och lätt att ta till sig. Den öppnar ögonen för att även reagera på design. Till exempel att man tar på sig skulden om man gör fel. Kallar sig själv klumpig eller dum när det egentligen är dålig design som inte hjälper brukaren att förstå och göra rätt.
    Den har tyvärr inte lika många illustrationer som en del av hans andra böcker men är väl värd att läsa. Den är intressant även om man inte håller på med design.

Choice "Even classics can be updated and improved... Highly recommended." "This book changed the field of design. As the pace of technological change accelerates, the principles in this book are increasingly important. The new examples and ideas about design and product development make it essential reading."--Patrick Whitney, Dean, Institute of Design, and Steelcase/Robert C. Pew Professor of Design, Illinois Institute of Technology "Twenty-five years ago The Design of Everyday Things was instrumental in orienting my approach to design. With this latest revised and expanded edition, Don Norman has given me a host of new ideas to explore as well as reminding me of the fundamental principles of great and meaningful design. Part operating manual for designers and part manifesto on the power of designing for people, The Design of Everyday Things is even more relevant today than it was when first published."--Tim Brown, CEO, IDEO, and author of Change by Design
