New ebook – The Usability Expert’s Handbook

I am proud to share with you my new ebook that accumulates my experience along with extensive industry research. In this ebook I detail the essentials for a Usability expert.

Being a usability expert is not as easy as it seems. A lot of time and effort goes into making things appear effortless. This may sound like a contradiction, but it’s really not. The internet is a great example of how people struggle to make things as simple as possible. Usability experts aren’t born overnight; they have plenty of useful resources that help them understand what is going on and push through the tough times. So, what exactly does a usability expert have in their handbook? Let’s dive in and take a look.

Usability isn’t specifically about taking out things or dumbing them down, though it can be. Sometimes, it’s about taking what you already have and making it easier to digest for the user.

There are some “must haves” for anyone that wants to be an usability expert, and the first thing is literally a handbook. It sounds silly to say, but you’d be surprised at the number of people who don’t write down useful information in a little notebook or save it in a folder. There is plenty of great information out there, and many great ideas will be lost if you don’t keep track of them. As for everything else? Well, that’s what this handy guide is for.

I hope you like the book. It’s free to download Here.
