Reviews for Designing Web Interfaces
Great Visual Reference for Web Interfaces
I've ordered this book just after attending a O'Reilly webinar with Mr. Bill Scott. Although the webinar was flawed with technical problems, the content was strong and very appealing. Bill Scott knows what he talks and writes about. He's the director of the UI Engineering department, with over 25 years of work under his belt.
The book is really straight to the point and concise. It exposes you to the techniques (patterns) used in today's websites for enhancing User Experience.
You have plenty of full color pictures to illustrate each technique (in my edition some of the pictures were not well printed, but they all are available in a Flickr account).
You'll have access a series of patterns used in web interfaces and it will explain the advantages and pitfall of each one. You'll will also have access to common "anti-patterns" and quickly understand why those are bad ideas.
There's also a companion website where you can expand the subjects covered in the book and get in touch with the author).
I highly recommend this book to anyone serious about User Interface Design and Usability in both websites and/or web apps.
