Book Review

Usable Information Designs: A review of two recent books:
Designing Web Usability: The Practice of Simplicity, by Jakob Nielson, New Riders Publishing: 2000; and
Information Design, edited by Robert Jacobson, MIT Press, 1999.

By Jeremy Hylton: "...both books suggest that the measure of a design's quality should be its effect on user behavior and satisfaction and that the only way to achieve that quality is to do real tests with real people during the design process."
