"...very informative and challenging...ought to be read by any one who makes any claim to design user interfaces. Highly recommended.." (ACCU, 13th February, 2005) "...provides detailed and easily readable information on interaction design..." (M2 Best Books, 23 July 2003) "developers have a lot to learn from this book..." (Managing Information, April 2004)
First published seven years ago - just before the World Wide Web exploded into dominance in the software world - "About Face" rapidly became a bestseller. While the ideas and principles in the original book remain as relevant as ever, the examples in "About Face 2.0" are updated to reflect the evolution of the Web. Interaction Design professionals are constantly seeking to ensure that software and software-enabled products are developed with the end-user's goals in mind, that is, to make them more powerful and enjoyable for people who use them. "About Face 2.0" ensures that these objectives are met with the utmost ease and efficiency. Alan Cooper (Palo Alto, CA) has spent a decade making high-tech products easier to use and less expensive to build - a practice known as "Interaction Design." Cooper is now the leader in this growing field. Mr. Cooper is also the author of two bestselling books that are widely considered indispensable texts. "About Face: The Essentials of User Interface Design", introduced the first comprehensive set of practical design principles."The Inmates Are Running the Asylum" explains how talented people and companies continually create aggravating high-tech products that fail to meet customer expectations. Robert Reimann has spent the past 15 years pushing the boundaries of digital products as a designer, writer, lecturer, and consultant. He has led dozens of interaction design projects in domains including e-commerce, portals, desktop productivity, authoring environments, medical and scientific instrumentation, wireless, and hand held devices for startups and Fortune 500 clients alike. Joining Cooper in 1996, Reimann led the development and refinement of many goal-directed design methods described in "About Face 2.0". He has lectured on these methods at major universities and to international industry audiences. He is a member of the advisory board of the UC Berkeley Institute of Design. Alle Produktbeschreibungen

For that, you may want to take a look instead at Jenifer Tidwell's Designing Interfaces : Patterns for Effective Interaction Design. Where About Face is strong on theory, Designing Interfaces is all about practical ideas, demonstrated through graphical examples.
If UI is an important part of your world, buy them both.
This book exposes the distinction between implementation model and mental model, and brings the concept of "perpetual intermediates" as the most common category of the users. The authors show how to classify applications by posture on the web and on desktop and handheld computers, as well as on mobile phones and public kiosks.
The aspects of the modern User Interface are well covered in this book: data entry and retrieval, direct manipulation and pointing devices, metaphors, idioms and affordances. Parts of the book are devoted to such interface constituencies as controls, menus, toolbars and tooltips.
You will also find chapters about installation process and dialog etiquette in this book.
The book is laid out in a very nice fashion. You can almost pick up it, turn to any random page, and start reading. The chapters are small and easy to read. I really enjoyed this book, and would recommend it to anyone that is interested in software interface design.
