Worth reading but take it with a grain of salt

This latest endeavor of one of the more renowned authorities in usability design strives to give a complete account of what is involved in the design of a successful web-site. While Nielsen uses many real-life examples to illustrate his points, I find more than a few of his assertions a little suspect. In some situations, he over-simplifies and describes the outcome of the problem in terms of "black and white", not allowing for any shades of gray. Whether Nielsen is successful in getting his points across is questionable due to this binary approach. However, he does bring up a lot of timely issues for designing on the web such as response times and overly flashy graphics.
The tone of the book is definitely overbearing and opinionative, nevertheless, his style of writing does make the book very readable. If you need to know the basics of designing interfaces for the web, this book will serve as a good reference. My suggestion is that you take his words with a grain of salt and not worry too much if you have to break one or two of his cherished "top-ten" rules of interface design.
