Steve Krug (pronounced “kroog”) is best known as the author of Don’t Make Me Think: A Common Sense Approach to Web Usability, now in its third edition with over 500,000 copies in print.
Ten years later, he finally gathered enough energy to write another one: the usability testing handbook Rocket Surgery Made Easy: The Do-It-Yourself Guide to Finding and Fixing Usability Problems.
The books were based on the almost-30 years he’s spent as a usability consultant for a wide variety of clients like Apple, Bloomberg.com, Lexus.com, NPR, the International Monetary Fund, and many others.
His consulting firm, Advanced Common Sense (“just me and a few well-placed mirrors”) is based in Chestnut Hill, MA.
Steve currently spends most of his time writing, teaching usability workshops, and watching black-and-white movies on TCM (when he really should be writing).
Chris Schmitt has posted an hour of our very pleasant (for me, anyway) conversation on the Non Breaking Space podcast. As usual, I probably said several things I shouldn’t have (e.g. bad-mouthing mobile design, starting at 11:20).
UserTesting.com has a very fun two-part interview about the new edition of Don't Make Me Think. At one point, I actually can't remember Geena Davis's name. (40 min. each)
Lou Rosenfeld and I have our usual good time discussing wearables (18 min.)
Nothing scheduled at the moment, because I'm working on a new book (not about usability!)
But I'm always happy to teach in-house workshops if you’d like your team to learn how to do more usability testing with less effort.
