The much-anticipated fifth edition of Designing the User Interface provides a comprehensive, authoritative introduction to the dynamic field of human-computer interaction (HCI). Students and professionals learn practical principles and guidelines needed to develop high quality interface designs--ones that users can understand, predict, and control. It covers theoretical foundations, and design processes such as expert reviews and usability testing. Numerous examples of direct manipulation, menu selection, and form fill-in give readers an understanding of excellence in design The new edition provides updates on current HCI topics with balanced emphasis on mobile devices, Web, and desktop platforms. It addresses the profound changes brought by user-generated content of text, photo, music, and video and the raised expectations for compelling user experiences.

HASH(0x8ec83a98) von 5 Sternen Excellent textbook for undergraduate and graduate HCI students! 13. September 2009
Von Jaime Sanchez - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
As a Human-Computer Interaction University Associate Professor I was delighted with the new edition of Designing the User Interface: Strategies for Effective Human-Computer Interaction (5th Edition).

It was entirely renewed and fully updated.

I have shared this textbook with my HCI undergraduate and graduate HCI students this semester and they liked it a lot and found it touches well and thoroughly current HCI issues!

Ben Shneiderman and Catherine Plaisant present and discuss timely most key HCI theories, concepts, ideas and applications.

I strongly recommend this book for academic and professional HCI courses.

HASH(0x8ec83aec) von 5 Sternen Reasonably Good Information 15. September 2010
Von Lisa Shea - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I've been writing computer code since the 1970s and have seen a wide variety of user interfaces - thermal paper rather than a screen, single-color displays, full color displays, mice, pens, keyboards, and other options. User interfaces are always changing and updating and being tweaked. With that in mind, I find it admirable that a book tries to document exactly what the current state of interfaces is - and not too surprising that the book can become obsolete the moment it comes off the presses.

So a portion of the book is common sense that can apply to creating interfaces in any decade. Your interface needs to be easy for a brand new user to use. It should provide "training wheels" for those new to the system, and then ease them into full use. A well done design should account for both elderly users and disabled users.

Various concepts are covered, like:

gulf of execution - mismatch between user's intentions and allowable actions
gulf of evaluation - mismatch systems representation and user's expectations

On one hand you could say these are good foundations for any designer to understand. You want to create icons that users understand without a thick manual. You want users to be able to quickly get the hang of your system and enjoy using it. But on the other hand, the book almost seems to assume that the user has never seen a keyboard or mouse before starting in to the topic. Surely readers know what a menu is, and how to navigate it. I'm all for books covering the basics and then going on to more complex topics, but the book wallows a little too much in those basics.

Also, the language tends to sway between incredibly simple and incredibly dense. Where the book teaches you to identify and speak to your audience, the book itself isn't able to do that well. Sometimes it assumes the reader is a visitor from the 1800s who has never heard of a computer, never mind tried to use one. Then a few pages later the page is describing a situation with incredibly technical language that is unclear even to experienced programmers.

Still, if we assume the purpose of this book is to give an overview about what things a designer should consider when creating a design, the book does that well. It has a variety of graphics drawn from current websites, that will help the content be understandable to web-savvy users. If you complain that some of the tips are extremely obvious, you can give that same complaint about just about any book you read. They have to include obvious tips as well as the advanced ones, so they cover all the bases.

So how to rate this? As an esoteric "overview of how computers should work" I give it 4/5 stars. It has generally accurate information, with helpful graphics, and while the language is sometimes oversimplified and sometimes obtuse, it generally is quite readable.

However, know going into it that the book is meant for this type of an overview. This is NOT a book I would ever give to any web designer or interface designer as a helpful tool to use and keep on the shelf. You can't flip the book open to a section to get tips on designing areas of your application. You can't scan through charts telling you what to do and what to avoid. While many other books are laid out well for this sort of purpose, Designing the User Interface is not.

When I read my many other books on computers and design, I amassed copious notes that I would use in my programming life. When I finished this one, I had accumulated barely a page of notes at the end.

HASH(0x8eaab450) von 5 Sternen Not sure what to say about this book 10. November 2011
Von Philip Schielke - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I'm writing this as a computer science instructor, that had very LITTLE familiarity with this field before picking up this book.
The good: It's clear that the authors have a wealth of experience in the field. I actually like the bibliography at the end of each chapter. I'm making my students read some of the journal articles from there. Book covers a broad range of topics.
The bad: This book seems like less of a textbook and more of a survey of the entire breadth of the field. As a computer scientist I often found myself wanting more data, or more details on certain topics. Many of the "findings" of researchers are simply mentioned in passing, as in so-and-so discovered this. Many times I was yearning for more details. Other areas where I didn't want a lot of detail I got more than I wanted. As a die-hard computer scientist I found the book a bit touchy-feely and wishy-washy for my tastes. There seemed to be a lot of subjective statements, and opinions stated without accurately representing the other side. For example the author comes out very strongly against anthropomorphic design (which I tend to agree with), and makes sweeping statements about how users always prefer to NOT have this sort of design. Yet, research in using anthropomorphic interfaces in healthcare has shown that most users prefer such a design (at least in the limited domains of the research.) Many of the revolutionary discoveries in the book my students saw as common sense. (Granted it's hard to see that someone had to invent or discover certain design concepts that we take for granted now.) The students felt they were being talked down to by the author's and longed for more CS heavy material.
I've read journal articles by the first author and they read much better than most of the book. Perhaps it's a bad editing job on the book?
The ugly: The PPT slides provided by the publisher are TERRIBLE. Fonts are too small, misspellings, images with text are cut and pasted into the slides and the text becomes too small, and blocky if expanded. Information that is emphasized in the text gets one slide, whereas certain paragraphs in the book that are not emphasized get 4 or 5 slides. I cannot say enough about how bad the slides are.

HASH(0x8eaab30c) von 5 Sternen A great book! 5. Dezember 2009
Von Alfred Inselberg - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
The 5th edition thoroughly updates and improves this valuable resource for students, professionals, and researchers interested in human-computer interaction. The presentation's coherent depth and breadth clarify how the interface mediates our access to information, and the need to match its design to our cognitive and perceptual capabilities. I was especially pleased that my colleagues Shneiderman and Plaisant included a chapter on information visualization also providing a rich list of references on this and other related fields. They make a convincing case for development of new information visualization evaluation tools. The 5th symphony, I meant edition, made me better aware of how mobile devices are changing our world and of the increasing power of YouTube, flickr and other social media. This is a great book!
