While much of the book is anecdotal, the stories can provide useful insights as to how to improve your own development projects. There are some good techniques included in the last two parts of the book for improving your own processes. Read the review at VB Techniques

Alan Cooper discusses how a software implementation should begin. By designing how the application should interact with the user (and meet their needs), a programmer can save a project from failing to achieve its goals.

If you find yourself bemused by the current woeful state of software usability, Alan's entertaining mix of invective, insight, and good advice will leave you practically ready to shout "Hallelujah, Brother!"

Wonderful metaphors and framework for talking about interaction with software-based technology. I bought copies for my 10 top developers.

Cooper has done a good job of pointing out common problems in software design. The book is well written, with interesting examples and anecdotes to illustrate the author's points. While most of the book focuses on "off the shelf" products, I think the author's arguments are even more relevant to custom software development. If you already believe that software is poorly designed, this book is unlikely to be a revalation to you. It will, however, give you some ammunition to use in discussions with "apologists".
I agree with the earlier reviewer, who said that the people most needing to read it probably won't. This would seem to be a great book for development managers and purchasers of software, but I think the only people likely to read the whole thing are professional developers.
I have two criticisms of the book (for which I give it 4 out of 5 stars): too often it comes across as an advertisement for the author's company; and I would have appreciated more "how-to" information. To this latter point, the author himself says in his preface that he had intended to write a "how-to" book, but was talked into writing a "business case" book instead. I hope that he will soon follow up this effort with the planned "how-to" book.
A final question -- what is with these 1 star reviews? I've read a few of them now, for different books, and I have to question whether the reviewer has even read the book. If so, they seem to have completely missed the point. At the very least, if giving a 1 star review, please provide some detailed criticisms so I can decide whether I am likely to share your opinion.

This is another cutesy, emotional attempt to cover up for second rate products. One need only spend a few minutes comparing the word processors of ten years ago to the remarkable office products of today to realise that what Cooper thinks of as embellishments are the basis for real progress.
Too often someone tries to sell second best as an end in itself. In every case they are really cheating the public. Life in the U.S. is full of countless refinements. Occasionally, there are snafu's and frustrations. But without many of those improvements life would not be as rich or as diverse.

The book starts out with some good examples of how putting computers into commonly used devices turns them into unusable devices (i.e. alarm clocks, VCRs, etc.) Unfortunately, his writing style is more like whining, and you just want to tell him if he's that annoyed with these products, just don't buy/use them! Get some common sense! As for the rest of the book, he may have had some valid ideas, but again, his writing style got in the way. It was like reading a computer manual - good reading if you want to get to sleep. I ended up skimming the headings, then placing the book in the recycling bin.
