A review of "GUI Design for Dummies" by Laura Arlov (01 Mar 1999)
A thorough attempt to present a methodology for UI Design. It is well argued and detailed and written by an experienced practitioner for the benefit of the less experienced. I like the style of the writing which is forthright, practical, full of "can do" language and both friendly and helpful. It never talks down to the reader. It is a good teaching book which shows through clearly presented examples, the dos and don'ts of the many tasks involved in developing a good UI Design. If this was made compulsory reading at software houses and IT shops across the planet then the reputation of the software industry would be the better for it.
