IN THE GODFATHER. PART III ince Don' t Make Me Think was first published nearly five years ago, people have been wonderful about the book i get lots of lovely email. You can't imagine how nice it is to start your morning with someone you've never met telling you that they enjoyed something that you did. (I recommend it highly Even nicer is the fact that people seem to like the book for the same reasons i do For instance Many people appreciate the fact that it's short. (Some have told me that they actually read it on a plane ride, which was one of my stated objectives for the first edition; the record for"fastest read"seems to be about two hours a gratifying number of people have said that they liked the book because it practices what it preaches, in the writing and the design Some people said it made them laugh out loud which i really appreciated.(One reader said that I made her laugh so hard that milk came out of her nose. How can something like that help but make you feel that your time has been well spent?) But the most satisfying thing has been people saying that it helped them get their job done better. But what have you done for us lately? It only took about a year after the book appeared for people to start asking me when i was going to do a second edition For a long time, i really resisted the idea. i liked the book the way it was and thought it worked well, and since it was about design principles and not technology, i didn, t think it was likely to be out of date anytime soon [ viil PREFACE Usually I'd pull the consultant/therapist trick of asking them what they would change and the answer was almost always "Well, i guess you could update the examples. " Some people would point out that some of the sites in the examples didnt even exist anymore But the fact is, many of the sites in the book were already gone by the time it hit the bookstores.(Remember, it came out right before the Internet bubble burst. The fact that the sites weren' t around didn' t make the examples any less clear. Other people would say, "Well, you could talk about the things about the Web that have changed. " It's true, some things about the web have changed in the last few years. Some of the changes were good More good sites to copy from Cascading Style Sheets( CSS)that actually work Useful conventions like printer-friendly pages and amazon. com s what's this? Google as the starting point for all actions The swing in business models from banner ads(for things i don't want)to Google ads for things i actually might want) Hardly anyone uses frames anymore and some not so good: Pop-ups Phishing But these changes didn t make me feel a need to update the book, which is about design principles, not specifics of technology or implementation And there was one other problem: i was very proud of how short the book was It took a lot of work, but it was an important part of the "practices what it preaches"business. If i was going to add any new material, I'd have to throw some of the existing stuff overboard, and i thought it all worked pretty well V111 ABOUT THE SECOND EDITION So, what are we doing here? One of the nicest fringe benefits of the book for me is that I've been able to spend time teaching workshops In the workshops, I try to do the same thing i did in the book: show people what I think about when i do a usability review of a Web site And since everyone who comes to the workshops has already read the book naturally i had to come up with different examples to make the same points, and different ways of explaining the same things. I also get to do a lot of reviews of different kinds of sites, because everyone who comes to the workshop can submit a URL, and during the day i do 12-minute "expert mini-reviews "of some of them and a live user test of one or two others and as anyone who's ever taught anything knows, teaching something is the best way to learn more about it So when my publisher started asking about a second edition again last year, I actually thought about what a second edition might be like and while I still felt there wasn't much I'd change or delete from the first edition, i realized i did have some other things i could write about that might be helpfu Like what? The new material mostly falls into three categories >Oh, now i get it. Teaching the workshops has given me many chances to think through what's in the book. There are a few things that I' ve rewritten slightly because i think i understand them a little better now, or i have a better way to explain them. Help! My boss wants me to_ A lot of the questions people ask in my workshops amount to"i know the right thing to do in this case, but my boss/client/ stakeholders insist that i do the wrong thing. How can I convince them otherwise?
