In revising this well-known book, Ben Shneiderman again provides a complete, current, and authoritative introduction to user-interface design. Students will learn practical techniques and guidelines needed to develop good systems designs - systems with interfaces the typical user can understand, predict, and control. This third edition features new chapters on the World Wide Web, information visualization, and computer-supported cooperative work. It contains expanded and earlier coverage of development methodologies, evaluation techniques, and user-interface building tools. The author provides provocative discussion of speech input/output, natural-language interaction, anthropomorphic design, virtual environments, and intelligent (software) agents. An associated booksite on the World Wide Web provides students with additional resources: http://www.aw.com/DTUI

Textbook for a Human Computer Interface course in my masters program. A bit of a dry read, but solid information, particularly on usability testing and topics like error message design. Read full review
