"A fine choice for any computer designer's collection!"
--Diane Donovan, California Bookwatch: The Computer Shelf, December 2011, Volume 6, Number 12

"Designed for Use can be recommended to both professional and beginner GUI designers. It covers a huge variety of design methods, ensuring that both advanced and greenhorn designers will find something new. Like Jenifer Tidwell's Designing Interfaces book, it IMHO belongs on every programmer’s shelf."
--Tam Hanna, Real Studio Developer, RSD January/February 2012
