Review

"Even classics can be updated and improved ... Highly recommended."
Choice

"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

"Design may be our top competitive edge. This book is a joy--fun and of the utmost importance."―Tom Peters, author of In Search of Excellence --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

3.0 out of 5 stars Can this be called a "Norman ebook"?
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on April 17, 2019
*Please bear in mind I'm reading this book on my computer so it's displayed in double page format.* It's a good book so far but I'm SURPRISED that the top reviews don't include the fact that the right page often doesn't finish the last sentence of the left page. Sometimes the right page will start a sentence, and the left page will try to continue it but the top half of the words are cut off and sometimes, it often repeats the last paragraph of the left page.

All I'm saying is... maybe buy the paperback version instead.

Get the MIT press version if you intend to keep the book. I have the kindle version and its much better (on an iPad). The paper and book quality is abysmal.

The book is very well known and you can search for the author's videos to give you an overview of what this book is about. Makes you think and definitely a good starting point if you want to learn more about design

Not a review of the book, I'm sure it's great. Unfortunately the copy I received was supposed to be brand new but the cover was quite badly damaged, acceptable for a second hand book but not one that is listed as new.
