"Even the smartest among us can feel inept as we fail to figure out which light switch or oven burner to turn on, or whether to push, pull, or slide a door. The fault, argues this ingenious-even liberating-book, lies not in ourselves, but in product design that ignores the needs of users and the principles of cognitive psychology. The problems range from ambiguous and hidden controls to arbitrary relationships between controls and functions, coupled with a lack of feedback or other assistance and unreasonable demands on memorization. The Design of Everyday Things shows that good, usable design is possible. The rules are simple: make things visible, exploit natural relationships that couple function and control, and make intelligent use of constraints. The goal: guide the user effortlessly to the right action on the right control at the right time. In this entertaining and insightful analysis, cognitive scientist Don Norman hails excellence of design as the most important key to regaining the competitive edge in influencing consumer behavior. Now fully expanded and updated, with a new introduction by the author, The Design of Everyday Things is a powerful primer on how-and why-some products satisfy customers while others only frustrate them.

maybe if the book was designed better it wouldn't be so goddamn boring ( )

I would recommend the book to everyone.

At times parts of chapters were a bit too chatty and distracting for me, but all in all it was quiet an insightful read.

Especially the details of human cognition and emotions, the importance of storytelling, the magic of affordances and signifiers, and the chapter about errors (and the differences between slips and mistakes) was capturing.

The shear amount of Don Norman’s experiences collected throughout the decades combined with his eloquent style of writing is nicely distilled in this book. ( )

I enjoyed much of the book. Problems were: it reads like a textbook, more examples are needed, it is definitely pro business and pro engineering - two activities I am not fond of, and the author is just a little too positive about his pronouncements. I do think that there is more to operator error than just being tired, etc. I do think there are more important things than caving in to fashion just because someone has come up with a better design of ____. And, finally, I do think life is more than the acquisition of goods under a capitalistic system. I do enjoy looking at the design of an entity and figuring out what is wrong with it. Always have. On the other hand, I see no reason why, as the author suggests, I should have a solution if I have a criticism. Neanderthal thinking. Finished 05.04.2020 in Malta. ( )

Norman definitely has some great ideas about design and making everyday objects more functional and useful. That being said, the book was written in the mid-80s and is incredibly dated; Normal writes longingly of a day when he can carry around a portable electronic calendar that can send him alerts for meetings and even--gasp--connect with his phone! Normal is also perhaps a bit too focused on practicality. He describes with pride how he replaced a confusing array of light switches in his living room with a bulky box containing a map of the living room, with a switch located on each light fixture. Easier to tell which switch belongs to which light, yes. But also hideous beyond words.
