Helpful information, a pleasant and accessible read

A very helpful usability manual that doesn't read like a textbook. I read a lot of technical books, and this has to be among my favorites. As of late 2018 the information is still relevant, in case you're wondering, and I don't see it becoming outdated in the next few years (unfortunately--because if the book did become outdated it would mean someone fixed something big in the usability world).
Steve Krug seems like a really nice guy. As a writer, he is NOT the person who will bludgeon you over the head and call you an idiot for not knowing the thing you're reading his work specifically to learn, an unfortunate habit that afflicts many writers of technology books and articles (I'm looking at you, Joel Spolsky). All of the figures and comics peppered into the book include full transcriptions. Nothing seems lost or out of place in the Kindle version either.
If you ever write user interfaces for anything from the Web to native software to even email newsletters with a lot of buttons and links, you should read this book. If you write the user interface for the Kindle review-writing page, you definitely need to read this book, because I can't scroll up or down within this text input.
