I've tried them all, this is the absolute best book on Usability. Finally a good Web book! Jakob gets to the point and answers almost all the questions I've had, even on the little things. I'm surprised this book is not worth a lot more because tons of work went into it. There are so many books on the web lacking of communication. This book is useful and usable. It takes a step out of the common since area and into good tips that have reason, meaning and that make your site better. If this doesn't do it for you, then stop looking because it's the only thing out there right now. And to top it off, it was released in Y2000! Get this book!
