For Amazon Book Review, Chris Schluep recommends Cliff Kuang and Robert Fabrican’ts new book:
“In this job, you never know what book is going to come across your desk. Sometimes you see something unexpected, pick it up, and discover yourself reading and reading. Those chance discoveries are a really fun part of our job. Recently, I picked up a book called User Friendly by Cliff Kuang and Robert Fabricant (November 19), which has the subtitle “How the Hidden Rules of Design Are Changing the Way We Live, Work, and Play,” and I’ve just been reading and reading ever since. The basic point of the book goes back to an Apple advertisement that the authors cite in the beginning of the book. To paraphrase: One day some engineers decided, since computers are so smart, let’s teach computers about people instead of having to teach people about computers. For some reason I found myself rolling that idea around in my mind; it really caught my attention. The book hasn’t lost my attention since.”
