Pressestimmen

"The clear writing style, comprehensive coverage of common design decisions, and the reference to human psychology that provide the theoretical support for these decisions make it a solid addition to your personal or professional library."--User Experience Magazine, 2014 "Even if you are working for many years in the field of UX, it is worth reading this book.you learn a lot of interesting background information that can help one to question existing rules, to consider their own experiences and to establish well-founded decisions. --UsabilityBlog.de, July 10, 2014. "...easy and captivating reading, something not commonly encountered in a nonfiction work on an important subject.software developers and anyone else who may be concerned with designing good user interfaces should read this book."--ComputingReviews.com, Aug 28, 2014. ".the authors provide an excellent selection of topics and examples that constitutes necessary knowledge for everyone involved in designing user interfaces, and perhaps even all software engineers.The book is easy to read for novice audiences, students and particularly practitioners. It is well illustrated with plenty of examples."--HCI International News, May 2014 ".guide to user interface design based on the science of human perception and memory. Each chapter focus on a particular limiting aspect of the human mind, including priming or experience bias in our perceptions, looking for visual structure, poor quality of color and peripheral vision, the high cognitive load of reading."--ProtoView.com, April 2014 "What's really good about the book is that Johnson provides ample details about the topic, but doesn't reduce it to so just a set of rules or mind-numbing (and thusly unreadable) checklists. His synopsis of the topics provides the reader with a broad understanding of the topic and what they need to do in order to ensure effective UI design is executed."--SlashDot.org, April 28, 2014 "In this valuable traversal of human cognition, Jeff Johnson illuminates its operation and exposes everyday fallacies and misunderstandings through examples and explanations. The results provide a useful education for everyone, but one that is essential for designers. If you are curious about the human mind, you will enjoy this book: if you are a designer, you need it."--Don Norman, Nielsen Norman group and Author of Design of Everyday Things, revised and expanded edition "Need to know about how things really work in the mind of your users? Designing with the Mind in Mind is a treasure trove, packed with insightful information about the cognitive pitfalls, perceptual glitches, and usability errors that plague user interfaces. DWTMIM is a book every designer needs to read, if only to understand why your brilliant user experience might not actually work in reality, and what brain science suggests you do about fixing it."--Dan Russell, Senior Research Scientist, Search Quality, Google "Several excellent books ago, Jeff Johnson figured out that the way to reveal user interface design is to emphasize concrete examples. This book is organized around 14 fundamental and wide-ranging insights about human psychology that are vividly grounded and applied in design examples. The book will be useful to professionals who can quickly inform or remind themselves of how user interface design guidelines work, and it will engage and equip students entering this exciting area."--John M. Carroll, Distinguished Professor of Information Sciences and Technology, The Pennsylvania State University

2 von 2 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Jens Jacobsen am 8. Juli 2014
Format: Taschenbuch
Wer nicht Psychologie studiert hat, der findet hier auf 250 Seiten die wichtigsten Grundlagen der Kognitionswissenschaft, die man für die Arbeit als UX-Designer, als Konzepter, Grafiker etc. braucht.

Die Inhalte sind immer an praktischen Beispielen erklärt (praktisch alle aus dem Bereich Web). Man muss also keine theoretischen Konzepte lernen, sondern man erfährt die psychologischen Hintergründe, warum man Dinge so umsetzen sollte, wie sie in guten Benutzeroberflächen umgesetzt werden.

Die Abbildungen sind praxisrelevant und verdeutlichen die angesprochenen Konzepte. Einige scheinen jedoch aus den 1990er-Jahren zu stammen. Das ist inhaltlich eigentlich egal, schmälert das visuelle Vergnügen aber etwas. Das hätte man im Rahmen der 2. Auflage ändern können.

Auch wenn man schon viele Jahre im Bereich UX arbeitet, lohnt die Lektüre. Man lernt vielleicht nicht viel Neues in Bezug auf Lösungsansätze für UI-/Konzeptions-Probleme. Aber man lernt viele Hintergründe, die einem helfen, bestehende Regeln zu hinterfragen, eigene Erfahrungen zu prüfen und Entscheidungen gut zu begründen.

Excellent reference on the integration of user interface design and the mind 28. April 2014
Von Ben Rothke - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Neurologists and brain scientists are in agreement that in truth, we know very little about how the human brain works. In the just released second edition of Designing with the Mind in Mind, a Simple Guide to Understanding User Interface Design Guidelines, author and UI expert Jeff Johnson provides a fascinating introduction to the fundamentals of perceptual and cognitive psychology for effective user interface (UI) design and creation. UI is a facet of human-computer interaction (HCI), of which HCI involves the study, planning, design and uses of the interaction between people and the computers and devices they are using.

This second edition is a completely updated edition, which has new chapters on human choice & decision making and hand-eye coordination & attention, as well as new examples, figures and explanations.

Johnson heads up a consulting firm that specializes in evaluating and designing UI and brings significant experience to every chapter. He writes that following user-interface design guidelines is not as straightforward as something like following a cooking recipe; even though people often compare the two. Design rules often describe goals rather than actions, as they are purposefully very general to make them broadly applicable. The downside to that is that it means that their exact meaning and applicability to specific design situations is open to interpretation.

With that, the book provides an exceptional foundation on how to ensure effective usability is successfully implemented. The book spends a long time detailing how users make decisions and choices.

What's really good about the book is that Johnson provides ample details about the topic, but doesn't reduce it to so just a set of rules or mind-numbing (and thusly unreadable) checklists. His synopsis of the topics provides the reader with a broad understanding of the topic and what they need to do in order to ensure effective UI design is executed.

While the focus in the book is heaving on general and cognitive psychology, the book is written for the reader who is a novice in the area, and stays quite practical, without getting in the vague theoretical areas.

The book provides scores of examples of how people relate to an interface, and how to design accordingly. One of many fascinating examples is when the author details the notion of attentional blink. After we see or hear something, either in real-life or on a monitor, for a very brief amount of time following the recognition, between .15 and .45 of a second; we are nearly deaf and blind to other visual stimuli, even though our eyes and ears stay functional. Researchers call this attentional blink and it is thought to be caused by the brain's perceptual and attentional mechanism being briefly fully occupied with processing the first recognition.

What this means for a UI designer is that attentional blink can cause the user to miss information or events if things appear in rapid succession. The book then goes on to describe techniques in which to create an effective UI to deal with the effects of attentional blink. And he does this for scores of other similar issues.

Another fascinating example is around visual hierarchy, which lets people focus on the relevant information. The book notes that one of the most important goals in arranging information presentations is to provide a visual hierarchy, an arrangement that breaks the information into distinct sections, labels each section prominently, and presents the sections and subsections as a hierarchy.

The book details the myriad areas which are crucial for an effective interface. Chapters 4 and 5 provide significant detail about the importance of color for effective visual representation.

As the title suggests, the book takes a deep approach to the neuroscience and psychology in UI design. Other chapters include topics on human vision, sound, task, cognition, memory and more.

As to memory, chapter details issues around the working memory of a user. He gives numerous examples of error boxes and help screens that work and are epic failures, and how to do it right. The classic example he provides is a 4-step Windows XP wireless error message. If the user were to follow the directions, the instructions would close after step 1.

Each chapter provides numerous implications of proper and improper design, and provides the needed recommendations. While the topics may sound dry, Johnson writes in an engaging and often humorous style.

The book clearly and empirically shows how effective UI design makes all the difference on how users interact with an application or web site. The book will certainly be an important reference to software designers, web designers, web application designers and those interested in HCI, and usability.

For the designers that can't understand why their users are frustrated, they can understand why here. For designers that really want to know what is going on in their users minds, one is hard pressed to find a better reference than this.

As the subtitle of the book is Simple Guide to Understanding User Interface Design Guidelines, Designing with the Mind in Mind, a Simple Guide to Understanding User Interface Design Guidelines, is an invaluable resource for those serious about effective UI design.

More Good Mind Stuff 22. November 2014
Von kfinn - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I read the 1st edition a few years back, and while I'm no psychologist, I felt like I better understood the rationale behind some common user interface guidelines. Guidelines can be quite useful, but hey, they're still just guidelines. I prefer understanding them, rather than just arbitrarily applying (or ignoring) them.

In the 2nd edition of DWTMIM, content in previous chapters has been expanded and updated, and there are a couple of completely new chapters: decision making ("rarely rational") and hand-eye coordination (relevant to pointing and target selection). This edition also provides more visuals: updated examples of good and poor design, mobile design, and other illustrations. These help the reader grasp the relevant concepts, and make the book fresher and more interesting.

If you haven't read the 1st edition yet, go for this 2nd edition.
User Interface Design: Not Just What to Do but Also Why 17. Februar 2015
Von Dan Keller - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Here is a quick review of Jeff Johnson's Designing with the Mind in Mind, 2nd Ed. As always, the best part of Johnson's books is the examples, most of which are drawn from real life. This is the basis for his Bloopers series and makes for reading that is both enlightening and entertaining. In Mind in Mind he does not fail us. Some of the examples are so obviously flawed that the reader is almost incredulous. Yet they are real. So the need for books like this makes itself clear. (I just hope he doesn't point his eagle eye at GUIs I've written...)

His eye is sharp and his pen is ruthless. We are the better for both. For example, on p. 30 he redesigns an unforgivably bad DMV web page to make it usable... I guess they were obliged to go with the lowest bidder.

Especially valuable is the appendix, a summary of the acknowledged UI gurus' sets of design principles. It's great to see them collected and summarized so cleanly. In four pages, Johnson reviews everything we know about UI design. Kudos!

As an honest reviewer, I should find some details to criticize but the truth is that Johnson's work is extraordinary. When it gets a little preachy (e.g. the borrowed cartoon on p. 36 about a boss who is clueless about losing customers due to unreasonable demands about home page design) I just turn the pages a little faster. On p. 32 he tells us (something everyone knows) that punctuating long numbers (phone, credit card, Social Security, etc.) makes them more usable. I guess the book is intended for both novice and expert audiences.

The book takes its own advice: different types of content are presented differently, each appropriate for what it seeks to convey. The structure and format of the information being delivered is always consistent with its content. Metaphors are appropriate. For example, I enjoyed his characterization of popups for delivering error messages as "heavy artillery". Indeed, who among us hasn't been fired at by these?

Some of what Johnson explains is exotic beyond the practical. For example, in Chapter 6 he tells how reading works, in terms of brain function. I make web pages. What am I to do with such intensely biological information? Nonetheless, even when it doesn't feel practical it remains interesting. I read a lot. Now I have a better idea of what's going on when I do that.

In general, the book oscillates between explaining how brains, perception, and thought work, and a series of interface design shoulds and shouldn'ts that emerge from these explanations. Thus, the design principles that Johnson expounds are science-based rather than dogmatic. This makes his advice and guidelines compelling. They are not mere opinions but are empirically driven.

Ok, there is one real weakness: a dearth of examples related to mobile devices. The book is devoted pretty much exclusively to desktop computer application user interfaces. Given that the number of users of mobile devices has surpassed that of desktops, my bet is that Johnson is already at work on a book with that focus. I look forward to it!
