I liked this book. It's like the snack food version of usability. He explains each of his points clearly, concisely, and with strong examples. There's not a lot of meaty here's-how-you-can-accomplish-this involved, which Krug claims is because there's no one answer to software/web usability, which is definitely true. Still, I would love to read a follow up about usability testing and how to use the results of such tests in development. As a relatively inexperienced computer person in software QA, I suppose I know a lot of the answers without realizing...but still. I did enjoy the part about how to express to others what you found wrong with the usability of a particular piece of functionality.

Yes. I read this for work. And I enjoyed it.
At least I do things whole-heartedly. :-)
Is it sad that this is really my first read of 2009?
