Designing the User Interface, Fourth Edition
by Ben Shneiderman
The most complete introduction to user interface design
For anyone who needs to understand the complex interaction between
humans and machines. The 5th edition of this book appeared in 2010.
fourth edition of Designing the User Interface provides a
comprehensive, authoritative introduction to the dynamic field
of human-computer interaction (HCI). Students and professionals
learn practical principles and guidelines needed to develop high
quality interface designs—ones that users can understand,
predict, and control. It covers theoretical foundations, and
design processes such as expert reviews and usability testing.
Numerous examples of direct manipulation, menu selection, and
form fill-in give readers an understanding of excellence in
design. Recent innovations in collaborative interfaces, online
help, and information visualization receive special attention. A
major change in this edition is the integration of the World
Wide Web and mobile devices throughout the book. Chapters have
examples from cell phones, consumer electronics, desktop
displays, and Web interfaces.
