Web usability consulting
Steve Krug (pronounced “kroog”) is best known as the author of Donít Make Me Think: A Common Sense Approach to Web Usability, now in its second edition with over 350,000 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 20+ years heís 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 teaching usability workshops, consulting, and watching old episodes of Law and Order.

I'm hard at work on the new edition of Don't Make Me Think, so I won't be doing any presentations or teaching any workshops until next year.
