Designing Web Usability got the message across: Web usability cannot be ignored. In his travels, the most frequently asked questions Jakob receives concern what he thinks about the designs of particular (often high-profile) Web sites. This book is a perfect response to that expressed audience desire and is a wonderfully concise and visually compelling learning tool furthering the message of usability. The fifty-five sites fall under categories of Media sites; entertainment sites; technology sites; business sites. The content is simply presented: Two-page spreads, each dedicated to a specific Web site's homepage. Only the homepage of each site is analyzed.
