Quotes and reviews

"If you are a software developer, read this book: especially if you don't think you need it. Don't worry, it isn't filled with abstract and useless theory--this is a book for doers, and those in the trenches. Buy it, read it, and take two sections daily." --Don Norman, Nielsen Norman Group
