Engaging, Educational, Enjoyable, Erudite: Excellent!--Dr. Jakob Nielsen, Nielsen Norman Group"If you get paid to develop a Website, you should have this book...I high recommend this one." Jessica Sant, Reporter, JavaRanch.com, July 2nd, 2003"An artifact of the Information Age, the oldest Web page still operating on the Internet, is among the nuggests of gigabyte gold in Jeff Johnson's new book, Web Bloopers." Chicago Tribune, May 10th, 2003
The dot.com crash of 2000 was a wake-up call, and told us that the Web has far to go before achieving the acceptance predicted for it in '95. A large part of what is missing is quality; a primary component of the missing quality is usability. The Web is not nearly as easy to use as it needs to be for the average person to rely on it for everyday information, commerce, and entertainment. In response to strong feedback from readers of "GUI Bloopers" calling for a book devoted exclusively to Web design bloopers, Jeff Johnson calls attention to the most frequently occurring and annoying design bloopers from real web sites he has worked on or researched. Not just a critique of these bloopers and their sites, this book shows how to correct or avoid the blooper and gives a detailed analysis of each design problem. Hear Jeff Johnson's interview pod cast on software and website usability at the University of Canterbury (25 min.): discusses in detail 60 of the most common and critical web design mistakes, along with the solutions, challenges, and trade offs associated with them.It covers important subject areas such as: content, task-support, navigation, forms, searches, writing, link appearance, and graphic design and layout. It is organized and formatted based on the results of its own usability test performed by web designers themselves. It features its own web site with new and emerging web design no-no's (because new bloopers are born every day) along with a much requested printable blooper checklist for web designers and developers to use. Alle Produktbeschreibungen
- Did you found the information you were looking for?
- Have you found e.g. the right place you'd have to contact for getting the help you were looking for?
- Were you able to buy something, without spending half the day on figuring out how to do that?
If you answer 'no' to one of those questions, then you should send a mail to the provider of the given information, and ask him to get a copy of that book *fast* ;-)
On the other hand if you are the provider you probably would like to avoid the bugs, and give your visitors a "pleasant" experience on your pages. If that is what you want, read about the mentioned 'bloopers' and check your pages.
Viele der Blooper (Fehler), die der Autor aufzählt, sind heute schon nicht mehr wirklich aktuell oder deren Vermeidung Standard geworden.
Daher ist das Buch nur zum Teil zu empehlen; jedoch für den Web Design Einsteiger durchaus lesenswert.
"Web Bloopers" ist in drei Hauptteile gegliedert:
* Fehler im Content und der Funktionalität
* Fehler im User Interface
* Fehler in der Präsentation der Web Seite
Jeder der 60 Fehler wird zunächst umfassend und mit Beispielen vorgestellt und analysiert. In einem zweiten Schritt werden mögliche Lösungen zur Vermeidung aufgezeigt.
Ein wirklicher Pluspunkt des Buches ist die umfangreiche Bebilderung der Beispiele und deren Erläuterung.
"Web Bloopers" ist ein Buch, dass vor allen Dingen für Einsteiger ein hilfreiches Buch sein wird. Nach der Lektüre aller 60 üblichen Fehler, wird man nicht nur wissen, wie man diese Fehler vermeiden kann. Sondern wird auch seinen Blickwinkel auf die Probleme von Nutzern beim Besuch von Web Seiten ausgerichtet haben.
Das Buch hat 329 Seiten mit einer Unmenge an farbigen Abbildungen und Erläuterungen.

You can find the list of bloopers on the author's Web site and I do not think this book adds much additional value, since most experienced Web developers have already seen examples of each blooper. You can find better descriptions of usability problems by doing a Web search. This book would be appropriate for a new Web designer/developer, or someone who has not already read much about usability.
In conclusion, most Web developers would be better off with the book Don't Make Me Think, a Jakob Nielsen book, or an Information Architecture book.
Each blooper is explained in words as well as in pictures (snapshots are taken of various sites around the web), and then the author explains why the blooper is so bad and how to avoid it. As with any design, there are trade offs, sometimes you have to commit one blooper to avoid another, but as long as you realize that's what you're doing, you're gold. This book is very well organized. The title of each blooper is a good summary of the problem. The index in the back helps you to quickly find examples both good and bad (and it also lets you see if you're company has been made an example of). The author even points out some blooper's in his own publisher's website.
If everyone who is responsible for creating websites took the time to read this book, think about the user, how intuitive their site is, and how easy it is to glean information from it, the Internet would be a much nicer and friendlier place. I highly recommend this one.
The cliche "a picture speaks a thousand words" is appropriate for this book. It provides illustrations of good and bad practice to illustrate common mistakes. There may be better books on web design, with more technical guidance, however this book could prevent expensive mistakes that could damage your brand and ruin customer experience.
If you are hiring a web designer, or approving the work of an internal team, this is probably the best book on web design you could buy. The book concludes with a 60 question checklist.
This is a great book to assess the end product and fine tune your site. It should also help avoid making mistakes along the way. It is short on creativity. That's not what I was after, so I'm not disappointed. I like the checklist allot (suppose I have been in audit too long!).
The author not only illustrates the mistakes through examples but also gives advice on how to avoid them.
The overall sequence of parts and chapters starts with deep issues of Website content, operation, and task flow and proceeds to more surface-level presentation issues.
Every blooper is followed by hints on how to avoid it.
The book is supplemented by a Website, web-bloopers.com. Among others, readers will find there a very useful list for checking Websites before publishing them on the Web.
It is an excellent, well-illustrated resource for anyone whose work touches on web usability issues.
