Synopsis

Thoroughly rewritten for today's web environment, this bestselling book offers a fresh look at a fundamental topic of web site development: navigation design. Amid all the changes to the Web in the past decade, and all the hype about Web 2.0 and various "rich" interactive technologies, the basic problems of creating a good web navigation system remain. "Designing Web Navigation" demonstrates that good navigation is not about technology - it's about the ways people find information, and how you guide them. Ideal for beginning to intermediate web designers, managers, other non-designers, and web development pros looking for another perspective, "Designing Web Navigation" offers basic design principles, development techniques and practical advice, with real-world examples and essential concepts seamlessly folded in. How does your web site serve your business objectives? How does it meet a user's needs? You'll learn that navigation design touches most other aspects of web site development.

This book: provides the foundations of web navigation and offers a framework for navigation design; paints a broad picture of web navigation and basic human information behavior; demonstrates how navigation reflects brand and affects site credibility; helps you understand the problem you're trying to solve before you set out to design; thoroughly reviews the mechanisms and different types of navigation; explores "information scent" and "information shape"; explains "persuasive" architecture and other design concepts; covers special contexts, such as navigation design for web applications; and, includes an entire chapter on tagging. While "Designing Web Navigation" focuses on creating navigation systems for large, information-rich sites serving a business purpose, the principles and techniques in the book also apply to small sites. Well researched and cited, this book serves as an excellent reference on the topic, as well as a superb teaching guide. Each chapter ends with suggested reading and a set of questions that offer exercises for experiencing the concepts in action.

2 von 2 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Axel Klarmann am 7. April 2009
Format: Taschenbuch
I bought the book to be able to treat the user visually right.

My expectations were full-filled with an overview of basic design principles and basic cognitive behavior of users using the up-to-date web technology. Some hints concerning accessibility were very interesting and seems to reflect active developments in user interface design.

The elaborated framework was applicable in diverse web projects and the outcome of using hints made in the book, were thought-out websites with user-centered design.

A very positive aspect was the section "further reading" at the end of every chapter, with commented links to scientific work, which leads to a deeper unterstanding of the presented hints.

Format: Taschenbuch
Wenn es ein Referenzwerk zum Thema "Web(site) Navigation" geben sollte, das ist es. Dermaßen strukturiert und systematisch (und übersichtlich gestaltet) werden hier alle möglichen Navigationsprinzipien und -systeme erläutert und illustriert (Teil 1 des Buches).

Im zweiten Teil des Buches wird ein "Fragework for Navigation Design" vorgestellt, das sich aus den Schritten Evaluation, Analyse, Architektur, Layout und Präsentation zusammensetzt, den meisten Konzeptionern jedoch nicht fremd sein sollte.

Im dritten Teil wird auf spezifische Themenfelder eingegangen: Suche und Navigation, Social Tagging und Navigation in Rich Media.

Für jeden Webkonzeptioner, Webdesigner und Webberater ein "Must-read".

Rings True 18. September 2007
Von Brett Merkey - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
§
The title of this book does tend to focus things, doesn't it? A book totally dedicated to working out navigation challenges in Web products means that it is destined to be a one-stop keeper on your shelf. If you work in any capacity on Web front-ends, navigation is often the issue of issues, the source of stimulating and heated team discussions. This book won't end those discussions but the information in it will certainly add calm perspective to them.

_Designing Web Navigation_ seems to have it all in one place, including practice discussion at the end of each chapter and further reading recommendations. The amount of information is impressive. There is not a page without a visual aid of some sort. I certainly like having lots of screenshots of real sites with the commentary of the author.

I also like the practical knowledge of the author which informs his writing -- he emphasizes the variability of the rules in the complex contexts we Web workers tend to work in. Note, for instance, how differently he approaches Amazon's tabbed navigation from how usability guru Jakob Nielsen writes of them. Nielsen never passes up an opportunity to exclaim what is wrong wrong wrong about Amazon's tabs. Kalbach, instead, explains the motivation behind each passing stage in the evolution of those same tabs, giving the dynamic context. This rings true for those of us with daily working knowledge in constructing user interfaces.

I was a bit disappointed that the book did not have more on the specific problems of designing Web *applications* instead of conventional Web sites. However, the book is written is such a way that this is not a problem. The advice and arguments on p.236 "Don't start by designing the navigation on the home page" encapsulates quite well something I have learned working on agile development teams over the years.

I had a few problems with the readability of this book. Page numbers look like squished gnats and all paragraph sub-headings were a pretty but painful light blue. The extremely large line-height weakened the separation of paragraphs.

As I mentioned, this book is chock full of the right material that belongs on your shelf for when you need it...and you will.

Great Foundation Resource 6. September 2007
Von Susan Prosser - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This handsome volume will help web designers learn how to analyze their business needs and translate them into a workable navigation system for their users. Unlike some other design books, James Kalbach doesn't shove his own design principals down the reader's throat. Instead, he cites use cases and usability studies that will help readers figure out which design approach will best suit their needs.

Lots of screenshots from well-known websites, great layout and good organization make the book a pleasure to read. The book starts by explaining general principles, so even if you're new to the concept of interaction design, you'll quickly get up to speed. More advanced readers could skim the first chapters, and plunge in later, where they'll learn things like visual logic and information design. Each chapter ends with a good summary, thought-provoking questions that either reinforce or expand on the chapter's topics, and suggestions for further reading. Note: I do have one quibble with the layout. The page numbers are so small it made my eyes hurt. But everything else about the book's design is inviting and useful.

Caution, though, this is not a coding book. You won't learn how to make pop-up menus or write clean CSS. It's meant to help readers learn how to make decisions about the look and feel of a website. Even though the book is focused on web navigation, "regular" software designers will benefit, too, since so much interaction design is driven by users' expectations that all software should work like the web.

Good summary on web navigation 10. Februar 2008
Von Gócza Zoltán Károly - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This is an exhaustive book that summarizes a lot of aspects of website navigation. I recommend it mostly to information architects of bigger websites. It is more detailed on navigation than the Polar Bear book (Information Architecture for the World Wide Web), though I still find that book the absolute handbook on the topic.

The book consists of three parts:
The first part is about common user behaviours, types of navigation systems, labeling, etc. This part summarizes a lot of things you probably know but maybe it is not as structured in your head as the author makes it.

In the second part, the author presents a framework on how to design web navigation. From the evaluation to the actual visual layout of the navigation system, all relevant phases are discussed with examples.

The third part is about special navigation: search, social tagging and RIAs. A good intro to the topics with some interface patterns.

The book has a lot of screenshots that are quite current. Some chapters are quite self-explaining (ie. what are tag clouds, or what types of pages there are) but that is normal for a book that aims to be a baedeker for all things related to the topic.

Useful book for making you understand navigation design 15. Dezember 2007
Von James Holmes - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This book's really targeted to make you think about how to make your site's visitors best able to easily and repeatedly find content you deem important. You won't find bits on CSS, Javascript, or Ajax. Instead you'll find out things such as selecting appropriate navigation menu styles for given contexts, information architectures, the impact of tagging systems, and some of the complexities around search.

The book's beautifully laid out with lots of shots of real websites scattered across full color pages to help illustrate important points.

The first chapters are pretty academic and can be pretty dry, but they provide good information on content/information architecture. The rest of the book is an easier read, but that doesn't mean you should skip the first chapters. Lots of good sidebars call out specific topics -- accessibility is a hot topic throughout the book and gets a lot of sidebar treatment.

The book's full of gems such as how you should consider workflows in navigation (think shopping cart systems, e.g.), or the differences between "lingo" and vocabularies. There are also a bunch of great references to other works, and each chapter has some nice exercises which are actually pertinent and helpful in making the reader more aware of that chapter's points.

I was surprised that globalization/localization didn't get more treatment in the book, but there are quite a few example screenshots and discussions around international websites.

Overall it's a very interesting, thought-provoking book.

Hands down, the best book available on navigation / usability. 21. Mai 2010
Von Jesse Taylor - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I've read a few books now on usability, accessibility, navigation design, etc. Some of these, such as Steve Krug's "Don't Make Me Think" were excellent, and really changed the way I looked at web design. Nevertheless, this book still managed to floor me -- throughout, I was exposed to critical design concepts that I had never even heard of, and to new and deeper perspectives on those that I already knew of.

One thing that I especially liked about this book, is that in contrast to many other books or articles in this genre, Kalbach provides scientific research to back up his claims about what is and isn't usable. Many other books will make claims that something is a best practice, and back it up by citing other people who say so, but won't back their claims up with *actual data*. Many of the studies that Kalbach contradict "popular wisdom" on usability in areas such as the usefulness of breadcrumbs, or the appropriate length of anchor text.

I also enjoyed the questions/exercises at the end of each chapter. The book is extremely information-rich, with many deep concepts packed into each chapter. It was nice to give my brain a refresher at the end of each chapter, to make sure that I had retained everything.

I literally cannot think of a single problem that I had with this book -- it was accessible, in-depth, well ordered, and aesthetically pleasing -- I could hardly put it down. There are many other good books out there on these topics, but none of them that I've found has managed to pack as much useful information between the covers as this one, and some of the topics, I've seen covered nowhere else.

This is how computer science texts should be written! A+++.
