Title: Don't Make Me Think: A Common Sense Approach to Web Usability
Publisher: New Riders Press
Authors: Steve Krug
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
A Great Book

This is a great book for web usability. It is not an academic analysis of usability, it is just what it says it is: "A common sense approach to Web Usability" It reads quickly and easily, and helps double check your project. I recommend it for anyone developing a web application. We already had Designing Web Usability by Jakob Nielsen, and it was great, but this book was perfect to brush through as we develop the product. It has made our work much better.

Title: JavaScript for the World Wide Web: Visual QuickStart Guide (4th Edition)
Publisher: Peachpit Press

Learn the JavaScript you'll most likely need...

This book is not a complete reference (O'Reilly's 'Definitive Guide' probably comes closest to that definition), but it is a superior way to learn the most useful JavaScript techniques (form verification, images, frames, cookies -- and debugging) quickly. The use of illustrations in these 'Visual QuickStart' guides can't be beat, and every line of code is explained thoroughly. If you need to learn advanced JavaScript -- or Dynamic HTML -- you'll need to look elsewhere. But you can't go wrong by starting your JavaScript training with this book.

Best technical resource

According to the three CISSPs I've asked, this book is the key to the kingdom. Written for technical folks by technical folks, it clearly describes the 10 domains. I made this book the center of my study platform.
If you are a sociology major, try another title.

Simply exceptional!

I just received the book and ended up reading it in a single sitting. Outstanding! This book is is a veritable treasure trove of tips, tricks, gotchas, and very solid design advice. You need to know C++ fairly well to follow all the subtleties but if you meet this prerequisite, you will find yourself referring to this book time and time again. The sections on exception safety are particularly valuable. Highly recommended!
