There are just too many pages in this book. I'd say 200-300 could have done the job. I suspect that the writers of teaching books are paid by number of pages and not by relevance. There are real values to get from reading The UX Book, but you will have to comb through so much before you find it. It's a shame and it's not OK.

Tiring. Useful but simple ideas are explained in an over complicated way. I would recommend investing in smashing UX over this if you need a good guide.
