A review by amelia_lim
The Design of Everyday Things by Donald A. Norman


Very repetitive, same concept is explained again and again, only in a slight different form. Not enough real world examples and analysis why they are good or bad. Sometimes didn't get the point why author had chosen some topics to be included in the book, didn't get where he wanted to me lead to.

The most valuable takeaway for me is chapter 1.3, the principle of design. Then these principles are then being repeated throughout the whole book with similar explanation. Would be better if each of the principle has its own dedicated chapter, to be explained and discussed further and deeper, and includes more analysis of everyday objects that succeeded or failed to apply these principles.
