Ein großes Lob an den Autor Theo Mandel. Er versteht es wirklich, klar und deutlich zu sagen, worauf es bei User Interface Design und Usability Testing ankommt. Vor allem gefällt, daß er nicht nur sich selbst sieht (wie z.B. Nielsen), sondern auch andere Autoren mit ihren Werken nennt. Also auch ein MUSS für diejenigen, die gerne tiefergehendes Wissen hätten; sie finden hier ausreichend Literaturverweise. Da ich viele dieser Bücher bereits gelesen habe, verstärkt sich nur die Überzeugung, hier den Gewinner gefunden zu haben. Für mich das absolute Standardwerk - noch vor Nielsen.

On page 7: "[UI] must have complexity, be interesting, have intensity, depth and richness, and be distinctive. It must have length, in its finish and in our memory, engage our minds, make us think about it."
If all my software had a user interface as defined by the term above, I would get no work done. And with the number of software titles available, if they all tried to be complex and deep, and distinctive, surely users will suffer. This is just one example, but I strongly believe that this book starts off on the wrong foot. And it even says to come back to that chapter so to remind yourself which foot you are suppose to be starting from. This book is NOT going to improve interfaces.

This book will not tell you how to create an intuitive and loyalty-inspiring interface for your company's applications. It won't help you create technologically cutting edge interfaces. It doesn't tell you how to design software or plan for change. It offers essentially no applicable guidelines for style or component choice. It doesn't have much to offer when it comes to the graphic design of icons or splash pages. And it won't tell you how to write the code to make a good UI happen.
What will it do? At best, it will open your mind to the field of human interface design, if you don't know it already. But there are no revelations and no surprises here.
If you have no previous knowledge of user interface design and/or have little knack for such things, Elements will break you in easily and comprehensively to the concepts. But with a little experience or common sense, you could gleam as much from a good twenty page tract as from this verbose tome. Skim it in an hour, or use it to feel vaguely productive during a lazy day at work, while you stare out the window. But don't count on much in the way of concrete benefits.

This is a very good book on user interface design - far better than Alan Cooper's About Face.
But if you want a book that tells you how to write code to make good user interfaces then this is not for you. Instead, try "Constructing the User Interface" by Ian Horrocks.

I'm a usability / human factors / HCI professional, and I thought I'd already read all the standard UI design books I'd ever need. After reading Mandel, I realized this book was an excellent standard reference. It belongs on the desk of anyone who is currently doing UI design, is planning to do UI design, or is merely curious about how good user interfaces can be created. This work has a good balance of friendly, accessible readability, and pointers to the basic scholarly research upon which the principles are based. Highly recommended.

I've just seen the author present a full-day tutorial at Seybold Seminars and I've read his books. Dr. Mandel offers practical, easy-to-understand advice and insight about interface design and usability.
In his books and tutorial, he uses examples to highlight the many principles of good design. Dr. Mandel's web site also provides valuable presentations and links on web design and usability.
I would recommend this book for anyone needing to gain an understanding and appreciation for the art and science of interface design.

Elements of User Interface Design did an excellent job of covering theory and application with easy language and real world examples, which is extremely use during the developement of applications. The analyses of popular UIs of the past and present was very helpful to convey concepts and theories of what works as well as what doesn't work. I would highly recommend this book.

This text pales in comparison to another I have read devoted to UI design. Everything here seemed like a repeat of what I have read before. Worse yet, it was delivered with less interesting, and less easily digested, prose. I found the content generally shallow and the examples lacking.

I suggest that you consider "About Face" by Alan Cooper instead. There is a book that rates a 10.

While this book does offer a number of good and practical UI design tips, it simply isn't as compelling as other books on the subject. I would recommend Alan Cooper's "About Face" over this book. On the bright side, this book's "Key Idea!" sections do make it easy to scan through for the concepts you're interested in, thus avoiding the often difficult to read main text.

As a software developer, I use this book on my interface design projects. It provides practical insight into key design issues rather than "cook book" answers. This is one of the best books I've read on interface design. Mandel doesn't talk down to his readers and he doesn't assume that his answer is the only answer or that there is only one answer.
