The Design of Everyday Things

I just finished reading this book. It sounded really good. And the first 100 (+/-) Pages are quite interresting but then the Author just slipps off in a repeating rant about the same things. If you have the frame of mind like Linda Hole and you really are interrested in what makes things useable this is a really good book and you can learn a lot. But if you just want some easy tipps it is definatelly to much. The Author really know what he is talking about. But as lost of authors tend to do, he only talks about the most impressive projects he has worked on (like Eric Steven Raymond with fetchmail, or Joel with Exel) It's a light read, and quite interresting but not really a must read like 'The Pragmatic Programmer".
